SHARKS and their serious threat of extinction are the topic of an online discussion organised by the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick.

Part of the centre’s Meet The Scientist events, the talk will be led by Dr Isla Hodgson, a marine social scientist specialising in human-wildlife conflict, ocean governance, fisheries and marine spatial planning.

Dr Hodgson also works for the Save Our Seas Foundation, an international organisation dedicated to supporting projects in shark and ray science, conservation and outreach.

In this free talk, Dr Hodgson will be exploring the relationship between sharks and humans and the steps that are being taken to secure space for them in increasingly busy seas.

The online event takes place on Tuesday from 7pm to 8pm and anyone interested can sign up at
