The White Shark Africa ECO PROGRAM is a Great White Shark research, ecotourism, naturalist and volunteer project operating in Mossel Bay, South Africa.
This program offers a diverse itinerary to suit the expectations of a broad cross section of participants. It offers a hands on approach to working not only with Great White Sharks, but also other species of sharks in the area.
The ultimate goals of the program are education, public awareness, the advancement of shark science and the conservation of all shark species.
What Is White Shark Africa?
White Shark Africa is a world leading shark cage diving, filming and conservation company. We are the ONLY cage diving permit holder in the Mossel Bay area. Cage diving is the best way to view White Sharks with the least amount of human interaction.
Being a responsible eco-tourism operator, we follow strict guidelines on shark handling. White Shark Africa is aware that the need for shark conservation is critical and has addressed that need with the introduction of the White Shark Africa Eco Program in 2009. Since then, the program has grown and become very popular. The WSA Eco Program has had participants from all over the world.
Who Should Apply To WSA Eco Program?
Anyone studying biology, marine biology, zoology, oceanography, marine tourism, animal husbandry, marine filming etc. will find the program particularly beneficial towards their goals.
We also cater for and welcome passionate conservationists who would like to help remove the bad stigma attached to White Sharks due to negative media. Since we run daily shark cage diving trips we feel it is important to engage the clients in a positive way that helps them to better understand these animals.
