The White Shark Trust Field Research Assistantship is taking a two week break in fieldwork. Michael Scholl and the White Shark Trust will be busy with SABC's Special Assignement TV program on the controversial Gansbaai Salmon Farm, and with a National Geographics production on White Sharks and Shark vs human incidents.

Our new team of field research assistants will join us mid-July, and we will resume our usual fieldwork.

Andy Brandy CASAGRANDE IV is living in Fishoek on the shores of False Bay where he is assisting Alison KOCK (South African Museum / Save Our Seas) with her research project at Seal Island for the next few months. Alison is also taking a break in her fieldwork to attend a conference, and Andy decided to spent two weeks with us in Gansbaai.

Chris MILNES (Grantham, Lincolnshire, England), one of our old assistants from 2003 and 2004, has also come back to visit and is also volunteering for the White Shark Trust as a friend and guest. Chris will be joining the Shark Diving Unlimited team on board Barracuda and continue our photo identification project during this break.

On Thursday the 7th of July, we again separated in two teams... Some of us were busy with some surfing action filming, while the rest of the team were busy with interviewing Shannon. We have been so lucky with the weather in East London, and all the surfers have been so helpful and have shown a profound and positive respect for Sharks!
Shannon Ainslie is interviewed by Sue with his surfboard that presents a very clear White Shark bite mark...
We broke for lunch at the little beach restaurant off Nahoon Beach... MikeR organised for a swift and efficient lunch in our heavy schedule... National Geographics invited all the Surfers to join us for a break... and Charles and Andy decided to act like twin-brothers once again...
And Shannon and the other Surfers were once again seen listening to ABC4's Great White Shark song in the parking lot...
