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

Justin HUBBEL (Anaheim, California, USA), Ronald NEALY (Freeport, Florida, USA), Anna BATTESE (St-Fadden, Australia) and Adam PHILLIPS (Redditch, United Kingdom).

Our friend 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 guest.

Our friend Trey SNOW (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA) returned as a guest on the 6th of May to Gansbaai and the White Shark Trust following a month of travelling and diving in Mozambique and the eastern part of South Africa.

Stormy days... Winter is here early this year! On Friday the 6th of May, we welcome back Trey Snow from a month travelling to Mozambique to dive with Whale Sharks and Manta Rays, and trekking across the Drakensberg... Many stories to tell... Trey was one of our research assistant from October 2004 through March 2005.
Saturday the 7th of May... My birthday! Tracey prepared a feast and we made a big fire to keep us warm and had a braai in the early afternoon... Michael Rutzen and Morne Hardenberg joined us also... and later that afternoon, we all went to our friend Frand Rutzen at his private pub Frank se Gat for some more partying...
On Monday the 9th of May, the ocean was still one big washing machine... 10-14 foot waves were still crashing against the coastline... Winter! Shark Diving Unlimited invited us on board Barracuda fortunately, Lamnidae would probably not have been happy (nor our assistants) in these rough conditions... We found some shelter from the heavy seas near Shark Alley...
We observed at least 14 different White Sharks today... but most Sharks remained deep and it was very difficult to identify the Sharks with the heavy glare on the ocean... It was Adam's chance today to enter the Shark cage, and he had a great time... the water was clear and the Sharks swam past and under the cage on several occasions...
