Hand thanks for visiting this page to learn about our great white shark research internship. Like many aspiring marine scientists, I dedicated way too many years at university to achieve my goal. During this time, I did, however, miss out on many practical skills that could have ‘fast-tracked’ my ability as a field specialist marine scientist. Specifically, the practical skills that are so essential to becoming successful as a field scientist, shark wrangler, educator or even an ecotourism guide.
With my passion for great white sharks, I joined forces with a number of shark conservation and research colleagues to set up the great white shark research internship program. This program is designed to allow students and shark enthusiasts to develop the hands-on skills needed to work with sharks on a daily basis, be it in science, education, conservation or tourism fields. If you are considering joining this internship in South Africa, reach out to our team and we will connect with you immediately. Hope to hear from you soon
