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

Benjamin WESTROPE (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA) and Jennifer LEE (Arcadia, California, USA).

On Sunday the 28th of March 2004, an oncoming storm was forecasted, but the weather turned out to be beautiful for most of the day. We were invited by Shark Diving Unlimited to join their trip on board Barracuda... Fortunately for us, since the sea got quite rough by the afternoon! We observed six different White Sharks...
On Tuesday the 30th of March 2004, we drove to Cape Town to fetch Ben's passport with his new Visa extension... We also visited the beautiful Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront...
"Over 100 million sharks were killed by humans last year."
"Last year 652 people were killed by chairs, 4 people by sharks." "Last year 791 people were killed by defective toasters, 4 people by sharks."
