This infamous predator of the ocean is a resident of our California waters, but how much do you really know about the shark referred to around the world as Jaws?

This 4 week course takes a deep look at the white shark from the perspective of first hand experience, covering basic concepts of biology to some of the lesser known details of this magnificent marine animal.
