“A lot of us are captivated by the great whites, which have come back to Cape Cod, but there are many dynamic species of sharks that visit the region each year,” Burns said, “Sharks are an important part of our ecosystem whether we recognize that or not. There are other species offshore that are really doing their part to keep our ocean environment clean and healthy for future generations of Cape Codders”

The discussion gets underway at 1 PM Saturday.
