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

Benjamin WESTROPE (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA), Jennifer LEE (Arcadia, California, USA) and Christopher POOLE (Nottingham, England).

On Monday the 5th of April 2004 we were invited by Shark Diving Unlimited to join them on board Barracuda for the last day of the Scientific White Shark Speciality Course group lead by primo Micarelli. We observed ten different White Sharks, but the sky was all grey and the glare was really bad. Great day though!
On the way back to Kleinbaai, we took a slow drive along the shores near Holbaai to look for White Sharks swimming in the shallows... unfortunately, we did not observe any Sharks, but we encountered two pods of Common Dolphins.
And here are some underwater photographs taken on Saturday the 3rd of April 2004 by Michael Scholl using an Ikelite housing with a Nikon F90x and a 28mm 1:2.8 lense.
