For over 10 years, the South African Shark Conservancy (SASC) has dedicated its efforts to promoting the conservation and sustainable use of living marine resources. During this time we realized just how passionate we are about working with young scientists and conservationists like you. Consequently, we founded the Shark Academy – the skills development and training division of SASC. We work with you to help you develop the skills and tools required to pursue a career in marine science – or simply provide you with a sneak peek into the life of a shark scientist.
The overarching goal of our work is to improve conservation and management strategies for these iconic animals. Be a part, join our team and make a positive and long lasting contribution to our research!
