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

Trey SNOW (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA), Nicolas PADE (Nivaa, Denmark), Alice CLARKE (London, England), Gillian Taylor (Sutton, Surrey, England) and Kate BARLEY (Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire, England).

On Thursday the 16th of December 2004, we observed four different White Sharks... The 'air conditionner' (cold and strong south-easterly wind) started blowing late morning and conditions turned choppy...
On Friday the 17th of December, we only observed three White Sharks, and conditions were far from ideal with a completely overcast sky and fairly rough sea conditions...
On Sunday the 19th of December, Michael, Tracey, Alice, Nick and Trey drove to Cape Town... After some Christmas gift shopping at the famous Greenmarket Square, we drove back to the airport to drop Alice off for her flight back to rainy England... Sad... The rest of us then drove to Tableview for a great view at sunset over the bay onto Cape Town and Table Mountain..
On Tuesday the 21st of December (Summer Solstice - first day of the summer - for us in the southern hemisphere!), we launched Lamnidae... After four hours of waiting for White Sharks, one Shark finally showed up for half an hour... The overcast sky did not help much though, and it was by far not the most beautiful summer day nor exciting day we had...
