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

Benjamin WESTROPE (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA), Alex RILEY (Nottingham, England) and Giacomo PALAVICINI DE WITTE from Mexico.

Sunday the 30h of May 2004... the sea was still too rough for Lamnidae... Giacomo went on board Barracuda (Shark Diving Unlimited) and entered the Shark Cage! This is Giacomo's last day with the White Sharks (at least for now)... In the afternoon, we all went to Cafe on the Rocks for some lunch (and milkshakes)... No Whales observed today, but some Dolphins!
On Monday the 31st of May 2004, we drove to Cape Town as Giacomo was flying back to Italia that evening... We had a wonderful and fun day together, visiting Boulder's Beach to meet the Penguins, delaying the unavoidable drive to the airport to see Giacomo leave at the end... But we are sure that Giacomo will return to South Africa sometimes in the future...
