Weekly Shark Update

March 30, 2009

23 March 2009 : A small Shy Shark was captured during one of our tours on the 23rd of March. It was quickly released again after all our clients had a quick “look and feel” at this little chap. Our tour guide gave them a quick educational overview of this interesting little shark and it’s anatomy.

25 March 2009 : A beautifull Giant Northern Petrel came to visit us on board, much to the delight of all on board who have never seen this type of bird before.

We had excellent great white sharks around the boat this week, all measuring between 2.5 – 4.0 metres.

Another great week out on the ocean!

White Shark Ecoventures are proud to associate ourselves with the TAPD (Tygerberg Association for Persons with Physical Disabilities).

After negotiations last week, we became actively involved in putting in place a coffee club where we are donating coffee, tea, sugar and milk on a monthly basis. As we feel we want to become even more involved with this organization, we are looking at the coffee club as a starting point only. Please check back on a regular basis to see what else we are getting involved in.

TAPD (Tygerberg Association for Persons with Physical Disabilities), is a registered private welfare organization. It was established in 1962 after a need arose for employment opportunities for persons with physical disabilities.
