“The Gray Curtain”

with Peter Trull, Naturalist and Author


Peter will describe, through lively discussion and his vivid photographs, the relationships among commercial fishing, expanding populations of Gray Seals, and the occurrence of Great White Sharks along the beaches of Cape Cod and the Northeast. This “Gray Curtain” has resulted from environmental changes, range expansions, population growth, and animal migrations. Although commercial fishers and scientists don’t always agree, in the minds of many, the Gray Seal has played a major role in the changing fisheries of New England. Now, a new charismatic, apex predator has entered the picture and has made its presence known: the Great White Shark.  Peter will have books available for purchase and signing.

Light refreshments will be served.  Handicapped accessible parking is available behind the building.
