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

Benjamin WESTROPE (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA) is in Mossel Bay assisting the joint Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and Marine and Coastal Management (MCM) research expedition to attach near-real-time SPOT Satellite transmitters on White Sharks.

Alex RILEY (Nottingham, England) and Giacomo PALAVICINI DE WITTE from Mexico are assisting the White Shark Trust fieldwork at Dyer Island.

Below are some photographs taken my Michael Scholl this week from the back of Lamnidae with a Nikon F90x and a 28mm 1:2.8 lens in an Ikelite housing.
On Sunday the 23rd of May 2004, a small winter storm hit our coastline, and the sea got quite rough... In the afternoon, we decided to go for one of the best milkshakes in the world at the "Cafe on the Rocks" in De Kelders.

The FRS Sardinops is moving from Mossel Bay to Gansbaai today since there were not enough Sharks in Mossel Bay. Ben is back!
