Now the researcher who helped tag these magnificent animals and make the world aware of their migration paths will visit the Wilmington area for the first time.

The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher and Cape Fear Community College present an evening with OCEARCH Founding Chairman and Expedition Leader Chris Fischer, 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 8, 2014 at CFCC’s Union Station, 502 North Front Street.

Fischer presents “Sharks: The Impossible is Possible,” speaking about how he and his one-of-a-kind team provide impossible access to the ocean’s apex predators for the world’s leading scientists. Fisher will share his own compelling journey to becoming a recognized leader in ocean exploration, research, conservation and education. He will also talk about a new cutting edge curriculum based on the Global Shark Tracker used by millions all over the world. The presentation will conclude with a question and answer session.ChrisFischer_OCEARCH_creditOCEARCH
