Auckland Museum Great White Shark dissection - video stream
I've been having a bit of a look round the Auckland Museum web site. They seem to be embarking on an iterative set of changes to the site around some of their current activities.
Great White Shark dissection
One of these was their Great White Shark dissection, or public necropsy, which they held in on the in partnership with the Department of Conservation.
The actual procedure was carried out by Marine Scientist Clinton Duffy from the Department of Conservation’s Marine conservation Section, and Auckland Museum’s Marine Curator Dr. Tom Trnski On the day it was watched by close on 4000 people. They also reckon 30,000 people watched it live on the web on the Upstream TV live broadcast channel.
The Museum web site has more detail, here . It includes a lovely bit of video of the event.
