Scientists from the University of Miami’s RJ Dunlap Marine Conservation Program will be on hand to share information on efforts to preserve sharks in light of overfishing, finning and other human activities.

The oceans are a primary source of the oxygen we breathe. Sharks, are some of the ocean’s most magnificent denizens.  Practices like overfishing, finning, habitat degradation are putting sharks and their ecosystem in peril.
