Navigating Conservation: Captain Brett McBride on White Sharks and OCEARCH

19 Nov 2024
Special Sessions Open to All
In a recent interview with CBS News, OCEARCH– a global non-profit organization that leads research into shark behavior and populations – indicated that the ocean is “teeming with life like we haven’t seen since the ’40s or ’50s.” OCEARCH indicates that this has led to an increase in the number of White Sharks. With populations of pelagic sharks and ray species decreasing by as much as 71% since the 1970s, and with more than a third of all species listed by the IUCN Red List as being vulnerable to extinction, this is good news for the oceans! Join Captain Brett McBride, a seasoned mariner, waterman, and fisherman whose remarkable journey has spanned from the decks of private yachts to the forefront of marine conservation for an inspiring presentation as Captain McBride talks about his extraordinary experiences on the open sea, his close encounters with white sharks, and his pivotal role in the inception of OCEARCH—a groundbreaking initiative dedicated to studying and safeguarding white sharks. Captain Brett will delve into the world of white sharks, and you’ll gain profound insights into the indispensable role that OCEARCH plays in studying and safeguarding these predators across the globe.
