Join EDU Africa and the team at Marine Dynamics as we virtually explore the monitoring of Great White sharks at the southern tip of Africa.
Dyer Island and the surrounding ocean forms a critically important ecosystem, close to the southern most tip of Africa. These waters hold a high diversity of marine life, including one of the densest and most readily accessible populations of Great White sharks in the world - making this area ideal for studying this apex predator. The Dyer Island Conservation Trust believes that Science Saves Sharks. The team targets research actions that will enable policy-makers and conservation planners to make sound conservation policy decisions. Over a decade of observations and images have been collected to aid in the trust’s research, including its Great White shark population studies that allow us to investigate the fundamental question, “How many?”.
