COAST News Intro
Dr. Chris Lowe and his Shark Lab team at CSU Long Beach were featured on NBC's TODAY show for their work tagging and tracking great white sharks in Southern California. Sightings of sharks have led to beach closures and Dr. Lowe is helping to determine why sharks keep choosing certain beaches.
CSU alumni ​​William and Linda Frost have given a CSU-record $110 million to Cal Poly's College of Science and Mathematics to support undergraduate research. The gift is among largest ever to public higher education in California.​
CSULB graduate student Ryan Logan helped film a 16-18 foot great white shark eating a whale carcass off Dana Point last month. Ryan and his partner Keith Poe were able to tag the shark as well as take samples of the whale carcass. The whale, named Scarlet, was previously entangled in fishing line and it's possible the entanglement caused health problems leading to her death.
