Predation is one of the most fundamental interactions in nature and one of the most inherently fascinating. But predation is rarely observed in the wild.

Shark Breaching is one of the main reasons that people come to Cape Town. And shark breaching is [...]

Aaishah Miller – Job Shadowing with African Shark Eco-Charters

Aaishah Miller – Job Shadowing with African Shark Eco-Charters Hi my name is Aaishah Miller, I am 16 years old and currently job shadowing at ASEC. On the 29th June I went on my first shark trip. The boat trip to seal island alone was really amazing, just watching all the buildings disappear as the boat continued to move forward. Along the way to seal island I saw dolphins swimming along with the boat, which was really amazing since I had never seen a dolphin before ,besides on tv and in books. We finally arrived at seal island and unfortunately [...]

Let’s Talk About It – The Seven-Gill Cow Shark

I decided to talk about the Sevengill Cow Shark this week, because against all that is “normal” we have been visited by these pre-historic looking, gentle sharks at Seal Island lately in the absence of our glorious Great Whites. Not to say that it hasn’t been wonderful, it’s just been different, as Cow Sharks tend to spend most of their time in deeper waters and kelp forests, only coming into shallower waters, it is believed, to breed.      This is a cow shark...............................That is not a cow shark                                              They [...]

Let’s Talk About It, The Orca

Let’s Talk About It, The Orca   With all the “boo-ha-ha” in Gansbaai, regarding the appearance of 4 Orcas in the bay, which seemed to coincide with the disappearance of the Great White Shark population from the famous Shark Alley, I thought I would take a deeper look into this phenomenon, of course only once the sharks had returned. There seems to be differing beliefs here, some on the side of the Orca, saying they are not responsible for the disappearance of the Great Whites, as they are not a threat and others who believe they are a threat and [...]
