ev_lec_Theiss.jpgJoin Shark Savers at a unique lecture series being sponsored by the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California. Cinematographer Richard Theiss and Artist Victor Douieb are presenting lectures entitled "Sharks:  Beauty of the Ocean Predator" on three evenings at the aquarium. 

Richard and Victor will be discussing their personal experiences with sharks and their work in shark conservation.  Pieces of Victor's sculpture will be on display at the aquarium as well.  If you cannot attend any of the lectures in person, they will be streamed live from the aquarium's website at the following link:

Also meet Shark Savers' Los Angeles-area volunteers who will be supporting these lectures with informational material regarding several of Shark Savers' conservation programs including Manta Ray of Hope and SharksCount. 

It is fitting that these lectures coincide with the critically important CITES gathering in Bangkok, Thailand, which began this week.  Several species of sharks are being recommended for protections including three species of hammerhead sharks and oceanic whitetips, as well as the majestic manta ray.

Come on out for a wonderful evening of art, information, and sharks!
