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

Edward FARRELL (Dublin, Ireland) and Barney DUNLOP (Bath, England)

Timo SECKLER (Ellenberg, Germany) has been our assistant since the 15th of July 2005. He assisted with the manual telemetry tracking of White Sharks in Mossel Bay during the month of August.

Andy Brandy CASAGRANDE IV has been our assistant, guest and especially friend since September 2003, and he has been living in Gansbaai and assisting the White Shark Trust during most of 2004 and now again in 2005.

On Wednesday the 14th of December 2005... Our last day at sea with Barney and Ed... and very soon, sadly, the end of the Field Research Assistantship. Four years and one hundred assistants! The weather was very pleasant (actually we all got burnt, especially Barney's feet), and the sea was calm... Nice last day!
We observed ten different White Sharks today... but again, the Sharks were very shy and lazy today... Fortunately, our nineth White Sharks was great and remained around Lamnidae for well over an hour! At some point, we were surrounded by thousands of Cormorants flying over Haibaai... We spotted two Sharks along our shore transect today...
And some underwater photographs taken by Andy today...
In the evening, we had a nice traditionnal braai... We will keep the good-byes for tomorrow... Our friends and neighbours, Lance and Jean, also came over for the evening... It is very sad to see the end of the very successful Field Research Assistantship... The only part that I won't miss is the sad departures of new friends...
