Shark Conservation Project

Frivillighetsarbeid med dyr

Shark Conservation Project

Frivillighetsarbeid med dyr i Sør-Afrika

This exciting project is situated in Gansbaai –the White Shark capital of the world. The coast around Gansbaai is home to multiple marine species. You will be able to experience a wide range of these South African Marine Wildlife, including the Marine Big 5!

There are shark sightings all year, peaking in the Southern Hemisphere in winter (May -September). Southern Right Whales including their calves return every year in July and stay around until December, when they return back to Antarctic waters. Other species including seals and penguins are resident all year and we sometimes have sightings of bottlenose, humpback and common dolphins. Our volunteer programs here offer a limited number of places each year which allows participants to gain the maximum from their time working closely with biologists from our research team on our shark cage diving vessel.
