In the spring and summer of 2020, an interdisciplinary, multi-institution research team will undertake a study of attitudes towards seals and sharks among voters, tourists and commercial fishermen on Cape Cod. The study is a collaboration among Salem State University, University of Massachusetts, Boston, Tufts University Center for Animals and Public Policy, Center for Coastal Studies, Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, and the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance.
