The White Shark Trust Field Research Assistantship is proud to introduce you to our assistants:
Michael UNWIN from Watford (United Kingdom), Jessica da Silva from Toronto (Canada), Andrew BLAKE from Newport (Wales, UK) and Maryalice WALKER from Portland (USA).
Tuesday the 8th of April 2003, the weather was on the overcast and rainy side... but what a day! We observed 11 different White Sharks! What more can we expect? Our assistants and fieldwork this month are really getting spoiled with Sharks!
On Wednesday the 9th of April, we observed three White Sharks... very nice day at sea, and as always a lot of fun (and silly jokes)!
On Thursday the 10th of April, I had to attend several meetings in Cape Town and Maryalice went back to University for a few days to attend some exams. Michael, Andrew and Jessica came along, went up Table Mountain, took a dive in the shark tank at the Two Oceans Aquarium, and later met Ramon Bonfil for a beer...
Saturday the 11th of April doomed with an upcoming storm... but we managed to go to Dyer Island... unfortunately, we only had a glimpse of two sharks, and it was rough and uncomfortable on the boat... The way back was a roller coaster, but we got back to the safety of land well in time.
