Shark steals the spotlight in our underwater surveys, as Marine Dynamic’s video gear witnesses a great encounter
Marine Dynamics in Gansbaai, Western Cape, is opening a FGASA endorsed Marine Guide Training School for local and international students. The seven-week course covers comprehensive theory on the Marine Big 5™ of the area - sharks, whales, dolphins, seals, penguins as well as seabirds.
On Sunday 6th of May, at 2h30 pm, a deceased shark was reported to the Dyer Island Conservation Trust. The Marine Dynamics team with the help of their international marine volunteers retrieved the animal from the high tide mark at die Skip near Pearly Beach. The necropsy was led by PhD candidate, Alison Towner and took place at the volunteer lodge the next day.
We walked away with the silver award for "Best for Marine Species and Habitat Conservation". This recognition for the team is a win for our marine species that we work with - notably the endangered African penguin and great white shark. Our community work was also highlighted, especially our DEEP programme.
The first three months of 2018 have been like a seal trying to maneuver away from a hunting Great White shark, going one way before changing direction, trying to anticipate the next move without knowing, however as we all know...these things can be unpredictable!
