This organisation has become recognised for its inclusive and holistic approach to conservation and ecosystem based research and focuses on a variety of initiatives, including an understanding the biology & ecology of sharks, skates & rays for management purposes, cetacean research focusing on southern right whales and the spatio-temporal behaviour of whales & dolphins in the local area, research techniques include photo identification, behavioural coding and environmental monitoring,  the collection of baseline diversity & abundance data from the Bay, a marine debris study and the investigation of the ecological role of mesopredators (medium sized predators including rays, snakes and sharks) in kelp forest ecosystems.

Your Contribution

Volunteers, Interns or Field Study students that work on this project are in a unique position to contribute to conservation, education and research initiatives in a location unlike any in the world. 

Although scientific research is the pillar of the management and conservation of resources, the effective dissemination of information research is a necessity for the various species-specific and ecology-based research projects that take place at this organisation. Depending on the time of year you join the project, you will participate in the following components of the program:

1. Cetacean Monitoring; 
2. Elasmobranch surveys; 
3. Estuary Monitoring; 
4. Estuarine macro-invertebrate surveys

Please Note

The second instalment of your project fees is due within 1 week after you paid the deposit on Volunteer World. This is a total of $495 AUD and comes off your balance. The balance is due 90 days prior to travel. For all further information about the fees, please scroll down to the section "Program Fees“.

A stay in Cape Town is a must.
