The White Shark Trust organises lectures for the general public (communities, clubs, associations, etc.) and for schools upon request.

These lectures vary in length from 45 minutes to two hours depending on the interests, subject, and whether or not a discussion forum is included. These lectures usually include slides, OHPs and videos - Please let us know what logistics will be available.

The White Shark Trust will mostly operate on a Donation basis, but there might be a minimal fee for transport.

If you are interested, please contact us for more information.

We support lectures in schools and educational institutions, as we understand the importance of education with regards to Sharks and the global Marine Ecosystem for our young generations.

Lectures can be adapted to the age and speciality of the children and adolescents. These lectures also introduce the audience to the World of Sharks.

As much as younger generation education is important for our future, we are also aware of a need to allow the general public to learn about Sharks, an all too often misunderstood animal.

Most adults nowadays, have grown up with the horific images of "Jaws" in their minds... but the truth about Sharks is very different. Through those lectures, the White Shark Trust thrives to display Sharks through truth and facts rather than myths and misconceptions.

Lectures can be adapted to specific and/or special interest groups.
