Great White Shark Conservation

Volunteer in South Africa

Great White Shark Conservation
From £750 - 4790
Duration 7 - 84 Days
From £750 - 4790
Duration 7 - 84 Days
Travel to South Africa and volunteer in the Great White Shark capital of the world. Cage dive with Great Whites and contribute to marine 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, Humpback whales, Bryde’s whales and a variety of dolphins. You can learn 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.
Some of your tasks may include:

  • Assisting the on-board eco-tourists
  • Observation and data input
  • Cleaning the boat and preparing wetsuits
  • Daily boat maintenance and diving operations
  • Cage diving
  • Species photo identification
