Monitoring and Observing Sharks in South Africa
During your stay, you will be working alongside marine biologists researching and observing the sharks and their environment. Moreover, you will have the task of sharing this research and knowledge with visitors going shark diving, and may get the chance to assist in tagging and tracking sharks.
