SHARK GUARDIAN DIVER PROGRAMS
SHARK GUARDIAN DIVER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM – SOUTH AFRICA
New roads paved into Marine Research Programs
Crystal Divers and Shark Guardian have teamed up to drive exciting Marine Research Programs on the reefs of the Aliwal Shoal in South Africa. Known as the Shark Guardian Diver Program, it has been designed to collect research data to assist in the preservation of our beautiful oceans by sustaining the vibrant marine life for our future generations. As divers, we are all aware that global shark populations are in decline due to over-fishing and by-catch; and it is our responsibility to educate the general public that if measures are not taken (soon), we might see the extinction of many of the shark species we see in our oceans today. This also has a major knock-on effect for the entire marine ecosystem and all the organisms which exist within it.
