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.

On Wednesday the 11th of May, another beautiful day welcomed us... Probably the calm before another series of winter storms... We launched Lamnidae shortly after sunrise, and towed DorSeal, Chris' seal decoy... Unfortunately, we did not manage to induce a White Shark breach today, although we observed the fin of a Shark at the surface following the decoy...
What an amazing and exciting day! Our previous record was established two years ago on the 1st of May 2003 with 28 different White Sharks observed in one day... We came close to breaking that record yesterday with 27 Sharks... Today, we observed and recorded 31 different White Sharks in just over six hours!!! I know that many of our old assistants will be very jealous...
Trey and Adam joined the Shark Diving Unlimited team on board Barracuda today... As part of our research project, we are investigating the likelihood of observing a Shark present around Dyer Island when working from one boat only. Beautiful and warm day at sea today, with perfect conditions!
