HARWICH – The Harwich Conservation Trust is hosting a number of Winter Talks at the Harwich Community Center during the months of January and February.

On Saturday, January 23 at 2 p.m., Cynthia Wigren, Co-Founder and President of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, will speak about Great White Sharks in the North Atlantic.

Despite its well-established presence in the North Atlantic, the white shark is not considered an abundant species.

Scientists have predictable access to white sharks off the coast of Cape Cod, yet those scientists rely on outside funding to conduct research.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy was established in 2012 to fund white shark research and promote shark education.

On January 30 at 2 p.m., Mark Faherty, Science Coordinator with MassAudubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary will speak about native pollinators in your backyard, like the birds and the bees.

The talk will focus on hummingbirds, and a variety of native bees, wasps, flies and other pollinators in our backyards.

On February 6 at 2 p.m., Mark Borelli, Director of Seafloor Mapping for the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies will talk about exploring Pleasant Bay.

In his talk, Borelli will help paint the big picture of how the Pleasant Bay estuary is faring during this period of changing climate and population growth.

All of the events suggest a donation of $5 per person.
