Chris Lowe, director of the CSULB Shark Lab, will be featured in a segment of the Discovery Channel's 2017 Shark Week presentation. Titled Sharks and the City: LA, Lowe's segment will air on Tuesday, July 25, at 9:00pm.
Discovery Channel describes the show:
Along the coastline of LA, great white sharks are increasing and they seem to be hunting out of season. Dr. Chris Lowe, Director of the CSULB Shark Lab, wants to know why. His investigation takes him to Guadalupe Island, off Mexico, where he finds the answer. Produced by Arrow Media.
The Shark Lab is hosting a preview of Sharks and the City: LA during its event "Shark Week @ The Beach" on Friday, July 21 from 5:30pm to 9:30pm on campus at California State University Long Beach. In addition to the preview, those in attendance can tour the Shark Lab facilities and watch a question-and-answer panel session moderated by ABC7 Eyewitness News correspondent Leanne Suter.
The event is free, but reservations are required. Seating is limited.
Support the Shark Lab
This event is free! However, research is not.
The dedicated supporters of the CSULB Shark Lab have been integral in keeping student research alive and productive. They enable us to continue to answer critical questions relevant to fisheries conservation, shark biology and marine environmental health. Using technology such as telemetry is quite expensive, and finding funds to acquire new cutting edge technology is very difficult these days with continued cuts to State and Federal science budgets.
Therefore, we rely on our generous supporters to help us acquire these vital tools needed to train the next generation of marine biologists. Contributions to the Shark Lab have come in many different forms, including funds for computers, telemetry equipment, student research grants, student travel funds, and scholarships. There are many ways you can help and contribute.
