“Shark Smart” Initiative Created by Atlantic White Shark Conservancy

CHATHAM – The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy has launched their “Shark Smart” initiative at Lighthouse Beach.

The program was created to teach people about the presence of sharks in Cape Cod.

Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning from 9 to 10 a.m., three AWSC ambassadors will be at Lighthouse Beach to share safety tips, details about the AWSC’s research, and the behavior of sharks.

“Especially with some of the new signage that you see at the public beaches this summer, we realize that people are really wondering what’s going on,” said Marianne Long of the AWSC.

“So this is our way to really connect with the community and answer the questions that they have.”

AWSC ambassadors will be sure to point out signs at beaches that advise of recent shark sightings, in order to keep the public safe.

“So when people get to the beach, I know everyone’s excited to go and plop their beach chair and relax, but it is really important that people actually stop and look at those signs,” Long explained.
