We’re team of scientists, conservationists, students, interns and volunteers who conduct research on sharks and their habitats. We combine cutting-edge scientific techniques, education and outreach, and stakeholder engagement to conserve sharks in the Cape Whale Coast Hope Spot and around Southern Africa.
The SASC Shark Research Program offers experiential shark science opportunities for Interns and Volunteers seeking to build skills and live a day in the life of a shark scientist. Whether you stay for 1-week or 3 months, the Shark Research Program provides you with the unparalleled opportunity to get hands-on research experience with sharks in Africa.
With the support of our students, interns and volunteers, we are studying a 200km stretch of coastline to understand coastal ecosystem dynamics, the role of sharks in coastal habitats, and how ecological change will affect people, spaces and species.
