The Town of Brewster Natural Resources Advisory Commission will host an in-person public forum to present the results of a recent social science survey on the Human Dimensions of Rebounding Populations of Seals and White Sharks on Cape Cod.
Public forum date: Thursday, August 11, 2022
Time: 6:00 PM
Location: Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, 869 Main Street (Route 6A) Brewster, MA 02631
This collaborative project generated knowledge about the views and experiences of residents, tourists, and commercial fishers regarding seals and sharks on Cape Cod. Investigators used surveys to measure stakeholder beliefs, attitudes, and perceptions of seal/shark interactions, management, and conflict mitigation strategies. Members of the project team will present the results and take questions from the public.
