Maybe They'll Find A License Plate

The Auckland Museum got ahold of a white shark that was caught in a gill net and died in the Kaipara Harbour area on Monday of last week. In an attempt to learn something from the unfortunate death of this predator in an entanglement (something that imperils thousands if not milions of sea animals each year) the Museum plans to broadcast the necropsy of the female shark online.

The webcast starts tomorrow, January 7th from 5-7pm for the United States’ right coasters. (On Auckland time that’s actually afternoon on Thursday the 8th, which is hard for me to wrap my mind around. It does however remind of something Charles Schulz is rumored to have said: “Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.”)
