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

Justin HUBBEL (Anaheim, California, USA), Anna BATTESE (St-Fadden, Australia) and Adam PHILLIPS (Redditch, United Kingdom).

On the 15th of May 2005, we welcomed Brandon MITCHELL from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA

Our friend Chris MILNES (Grantham, Lincolnshire, England), one of our old assistants from 2003 and 2004, has also come back to visit and is also volunteering for the White Shark Trust as a guest.

Our friend Trey SNOW (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA) returned as a guest on the 6th of May to Gansbaai and the White Shark Trust following a month of travelling and diving in Mozambique and the eastern part of South Africa.

After another series of winter storms, we finally managed to go to sea again on Friday the 20th of May 2005... Brandon's first day after a frustrating four days of waiting in expectation... But it was worth it!!! What an amazing, fantastic, beautiful and exciting day! We observed 16 different White Sharks in ideal conditions. Clear sky, flat ocean and good visibility...
Tracey, Justin and Chris drove to Cape Town today (of all days?), to get their Visas: Chris to get his three month visa extension and Justin to get his visa for Mozambique... We had four playing Sharks around Lamnidae, and they really put up a great show for us... This has been the worst winter in many years so far, and it probably will get worse as we move into winter.
And this is finally the reason why these Sharks are called 'Great White Sharks'!
