  • Great white sharks are becoming a more common sight along the East Coast. Beach closures are not unusual along Cape Cod, but most beach-goers are taking the new threat in stride.
  • Beach-goers are seeing more sharks off the coast of Cape Cod, and experts say that is not surprising. The sharks follow their food, seals, to that part of the Massachusetts coast. Several sharks had been tagged by researchers, and some have already reappeared this year.
  • Dolphins have been stranding themselves along the shores of Cape Cod Bay since the Pilgrims' times, and this winter is no different. What is different is how long the latest round of strandings has lasted — almost a month. No one knows why the animals come ashore, but when they do teams of rescuers mobilize to try to save them.
