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

Benjamin WESTROPE (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA), Alex RILEY (Nottingham, England) and Giacomo PALAVICINI DE WITTE from Mexico.

On Friday the 7th of May 2004, Ben, Alex and Giacomo went to sea on board Barracuda (Shark Diving Unlimited). I spent the day with Tracey on my birthday (33). In the evening, we had a great party...

They observed eight different White Sharks, and Giacomo dared the fresh water for a dive in the Shark cage...

On Saturday the 8th of May 2004, the sea was unsettled and we decided not to go to sea (the sea was one reason, the birthday party the night before was another). Ben, Alex and Giacomo walked up the Gansbaai mountain, and babooned around in the Fynbos as you can see from the pictures they took. Very nice excursion!
