The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Dr. Kim Ritchie on December 2 at 2 p.m. to share her experiences with sharks. People tend to think of sharks as dangerous, indiscriminate predators. Dr. Ritchie aims to make you think differently about sharks and their benefits to humans, our ecosystems and our planet. She will also discuss some of our local sharks and their antibiotic-producing microbial partners.
Kim Ritchie received a PhD at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill before postdoctoral studies at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego.
Cost is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223. The museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head Island.
