Practical training in shark and marine research techniques
The Oceans Research Internship Program enables aspiring scientists and conservationists to work in conjunction with leading marine biologists. You will work with the scientists as they undertake ground-breaking research on the charismatic marine mega-fauna of Southern Africa, including great white sharks.
A unique internship experience to learn a wide variety of projects and in depth aspects of practical field research on species such white sharks, bottlenose dolphins, Southern right whales and smaller benthic shark species. Research will be done both at sea and in an aquarium. During your stay you play a vital role, from data collection to data management. We use your collected data to advise various industries, including the government, on real-time issues in marine conservation.
