Gills Club at Mote Marine!
As you may remember from September, Catherine was a featured scientist for the Gills Club, a program of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy that supports girls with an interest in marine science, and especially in sharks! In late October, we went over to Sarasota to speak to their monthly meeting. Catherine gave a short talk about shark tourism and how people perceive sharks, and answered some cool questions--like whether manta rays have stingers and can hurt you (nope!) and what all those sharks are doing off the coast of Florida these days (migrating seasonally to warmer water). We had a great time and met some amazing future scientists (and maybe a few future artists). Thanks to Mote Marine Laboratory and Gills Club for hosting us!
