This is a month-long celebration of sharks, some of the ocean’s most beautiful, mysterious, misunderstood, and endangered species, and to the idea that we have the power to reverse the decline of these important species. Hosts Dr. Sylvia Earle and oceanographer Liz Taylor will talk about sharks and their role in the ocean’s natural order. Each town hall will be open to text and call-in questions for conversations with the hosts and guests.
