Twilight bites: Sharks, protection and detection

Information

In the third instalment of Twilight bites, Dr Paul Butcher dives into the science behind tagging and tracking the ocean’s fiercest sharks.

There are around 400 shark species on the planet, and half of them can be found in the waters around Australia.

As a Principal Research Scientist with the NSW Department of Primary Industries, Dr Paul Butcher is using real-time technology to research, track and trace the movements of White, Tiger and Bull sharks.

Join us for canapes and conversation as Paul shares some of the science that is helping to keep sharks and swimmers separate. From airborne drones to personal deterrent devices, this is a unique insight into the future of shark conservation.

Following the talk, explore the AM’s Sharks exhibition where a dedicated Shark scientist will share their research and be on hand to answer your questions
