Thursday evening library series focuses on incredible Bay animals


Beginning April 26 and each following Thursday at 7 p.m. through May 17 the Warwick Public Library will host a series of presentations on the wonderful and surprising animals of Narragansett Bay.

On April 26, Dave Beutel, a former commercial fisherman and URI fisheries researcher, talks about unusual and unexpected marine life in the Bay.

On May 3, the topic is seals in Narragansett Bay. URI marine research scientist Bob Kenney reveals which seals visit the Bay and why their numbers are increasing.

On May 10, URI research associate Malia Schwartz discusses which sea turtles visit local waters and what threatens them.

And on May 17, the topic is “Changing Fish Populations in Narragansett Bay.” URI doctoral student Anna Malek will describe how fish populations have changed as the Bay has grown warmer.

This program is free and open to all.
