GREENWICH, Conn. -- Kaitlin Gallagher, Ph.D. candidate at the University of Connecticut will give a talk on “Sharks and their Parasites" Sunday at the Innis Arden Cottage in Greenwich Point Park, Old Greenwich.

Shark activities for all ages will be available from 1:30 to 4 p.m. At 2 p.m., Gallagher will discuss sharks and how they function as a host organism.

Her research on sharks will reveal how parasites connect sharks to other species, and what studying their tapeworms can tell us about sharks’ diet, location, pollution levels and more.

The program is free to all, and no reservations are required. For additional information, contact Bruce Museum Seaside Center manager Cynthia Ehlinger at cynthiae@brucemusuem.or or 203-413-6756.

The discussion is part of the Fred Elser First Sunday Science at the Seaside Center program sponsored by the Bruce Museum.
