|On the 20th of January, we welcomed back another of our assistants from 2002, Tom FLENGERIS (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) and on the 20th of February, we welcomed back another of our assistants from 2003, Chris MILNES (Grantham, Lincolnshire, England). Trey Snow, Tom Flengeris and Chris Milnes are not part of the Field Research Assistantship anymore, but they have volunteered for the White Shark Trust.
During the months of January through March, Trey SNOW (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA), Tom FLENGERIS and Chris MILNES conducted our transitory fieldwork from Barracuda, the commercial cage-diving boat of Shark Diving Unlimited.
At the end of March, Tom left for a diving trip to Mozambique, and at the beginning of April, Trey also left Gansbaai for a diving trip to Mozambique... We hope that they get to dive with some Whale Sharks! Chris Milnes (Dorsal Graphics) is a graphic designer and he is helping us with his expertise...
