The White Shark Trust Field Research Assistantship is proud to introduce you to our assistants:

Chris MILNES (Grantham, Lincolnshire, England), Andy CASAGRANDE (Santa Cruz, California, USA), Polly CROUCH, Alice CLARKE (London, England), and Rick HOLMES (Likely, BC, Canada).

Alan DUNCAN (Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland) has been with us since the beginning of September. Marine and Coastal Management (MCM) invited one of our assistants to help them during their two week satellite tagging project at Dyer Island and in Mossel Bay on board the FRS Sardinops. Alan was the lucky assistant to join this joint research program with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). He joins the tagging team from the 3rd to the 17th of November 2003...

Saturday the 15th of November 2003... Unfortunately the sea got rough on Friday and we could not go to sea again...

Instead, we went to Danger Point to visit the lighthouse and the HMS Birkenhead memorial, and then had a light lunch at the Cafe on the Rocks in De Kelders that afternoon...

At home, we had a champagne toast to celebrate the past few months on the terasse in the assistant's flat... Alan, Andy, Polly and Alice then all left with Tom Peschak to Pringle Bay for a few weeks to work for the Primate Project.

The White Shark Trust is taking two weeks fieldwork holidays as Michael's parents come to visit from Switzerland...

Warning

Some of the photographs shown in these pages depict hooking and handling Great White Sharks. These pictures do not reflect the White Shark Trust's foundation statement. The SPOT satellite tagging is a joint collaboration between the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and Marine and Coastal Management (MCM). The White Shark Trust does not agree or support the hooking operation of White Sharks to attach SPOT tags to the dorsal fins. The White Shark Trust would like to see alternative attachment methods used without hooking and hauling the Sharks out of the water. The White Shark Trust does however support the PAT tagging program.
