Volunteers will attend interesting, informative lectures by our marine biologists and expert crew on:
Shark biology and behavior off the coast of South Africa
Basic seamanship and safety at sea
Shark tagging and tracking
Dyer Island Conservation Trust projects
Our monthly marine evenings mean you will also get to hear other conservations and shark experts share their knowledge.
Interested and keen volunteers and those who are studying in a related field will have the opportunity to go on research expeditions and assist our marine biologists in data collection and shark tracking amongst other experiences, such as environmental surveys.
Volunteers will also experience working with the community. We do regular beach clean ups with our local schools, providing a great opportunity to work with children. We are involved in other projects such as:
- Penguin nests which sometimes need placement at the colonies
- Shark egg collection;
- Bird surveys
- Animal rescues
- Penguin colonies are sensitive and it is not possible to always be involved in a rescue attempt but if possible we will do so.
