Welcome to Natural History Week 2023

Join us to discover the fascinating ecological secrets of the Isles of Shoals directly from the scientists unraveling them. Speakers from the Shoals Marine Laboratory (SML) on our sister island Appledore will share current studies of marine science such as seabirds, seals, and more.  The scientists will share their study design, methodologies, data collection, and how their findings enhance our understanding of the islands’ ecology and human impacts.


Dr. Jennifer Seavey will introduce and conclude our week, with ‘guest’ scientist speakers from the Shoals Marine Lab each day highlighting specific studies.  We hope to include a behind-the-scenes tour of the SML, and a boat trip to view the tern and seal study sites on nearby White Island and other isles.
