Summary

Great White Shark Conservation

The two cornerstones of this project are marine conservation and research and taking tourists out to go cage diving with sharks so they can enjoy the excitement and feel the power of these animals for themselves. In addition, the project works on community development  and education projects in the community so locals can understand the need to protect the biodiversity in the area.

On this project you will be completely involved in the eco-tourism (cage diving) and conservation work throughout your stay. While working alongside marine biologists, you will learn about  the behaviors of the marine species in the area including Southern Right whales, Humpack whales, Bryde's whales and a variety of dolphins. You can learn about how researchers track marine life and what data needs to be recorded. You will also assist on the tourist boat by helping cage divers and educating visitors, plus you will have the opportunity to go cage diving yourself  to get up-close and personal with Great White sharks.
