New York sits on the edge of a vast sea. Indeed, our salty waters are home to an ecological treasure trove of marine wildlife supported by a fascinating array of habitats. Yet few New Yorkers are aware of this biodiversity, or the on-going and emerging threats that these animals and their habitats face in the increasingly busy coastal and ocean waters of the New York Bright. Join us as we share the wonders of the New York Seascape, talk about some of the research that WCS is conducting on local sharks and eels, and learn how you and your students can make a difference.
