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.
This is your opportunity to gain practical and theoretical training in a wide expanse of marine research techniques including white sharks; dolphins and whales and small benthic species. You will also get to work in an aquarium. During your stay you play a vital role which includes the collecting of data. We use your collected data to advise various industries, including the government, on real-time issues such as marine conservation.
