Abstract

Profile of Dr. Susan Shaw of Brooklin, who along with Admiral Robert E. Peary, is one of 33 Mainers, eight of them women, to be inducted into The Explorers Club of New York. She founded the Marine Environmental Research Institute in Blue Hill and was recognized for decades of work examining the impact of toxins on marine mammals such as seals, as well as on humans. Her work on Maine harbor seals found levels of PCBs, DDT, and other chemicals that are among the highest ever recorded in North America. She is now studying the concentrations of PBDEs, major flame-retardant compounds, in seals.
