Learn how training dogs compares to training sharks, and discover the challenges and benefits of both, during Mote Marine Laboratory’s new Science Café from 6 to 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 5:30) Monday, Dec. 10, on the second floor of Eat Here, 1888 Main St., Sarasota. Food and drink specials will be available. Mote Science Cafés are informal, community discussions that give everyone the chance to participate. The Café will feature Matt Seguin, husbandry supervisor in the aquarium at Mote, where sharks are trained to swim to special targets for their food — a behavior that helps Mote take good care of them — and specialized trainers Karen Mersereau and Alice Ryskamp from Southeastern Guide Dogs, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing guide dogs for the visually impaired. For more information about Southeastern Guide Dogs, visit guidedogs.org/. Please contact Mote at 388-4441, Ext. 172 to RSVP. Information is available at mote.org/sciencecafe.
