​Dr. Jeff Downing​, a professor of Fine Arts at San Francisco State University, created a display of aquatic markers at MarinMOCA in Novato for the exhibit, “Level Up! A Sculptural View of Sea Level Rise.” ​These sculptures will display the impacts and effects of sea-level rise on communities. 


​Dr. Chris Lowe, a professor in marine biology and director of the Shark Lab at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB)​, interviews on the ​Today's Show talking about why shark attacks are on the rise. Most shark attacks are not fatal and are often a result of the shark hunting fish close to the shores. ​
