Shark & Marine Research Institute – Research Assistant Program

We are a Shark research NPO based in the Great White Capital of the world – Gaansbaai. We conduct various scientific research projects in collaboration with Stellenbosch University with the aim of obtaining Government legislated protected status for our vulnerable Shark species. We invite all early career scientists and budding Marine Biologists to join us and assist our Marine Biologist in various research projects – from dorsal fin identification data collection and analysis to ethical angling and tagging techniques as well as catch and release surveys in our local Kelp forests and a host of other projects and local outreach initiatives. You can get credits towards your degree (dependent on your Educational institution) We supply a wealth of experience in the field – you will not partake in any menial labor – the focus is research, education and conservation with an Adrenalin pumping dose of adventure! Our accommodation is a comfortable, fully kitted home away from home set on the seaside overlooking our splendid bay.
