Support Shark Spotters

Whether it’s your beloved ‘babes’ on the beach, a long-lensed tourist, God or Sting – when you’re wading in sharky waters, surfers all take a little bit of comfort in knowing that someone out there “will be watching you…”

Adopted by the City of Cape Town in 2004, Shark Spotting is now the primary shark safety programme used in Cape Town. Although we all enter the water at our own risk, Shark Spotters has proven to be an effective pioneering warning system, with thousands of shark sightings recorded over the past 12 years. Shark Spotters believe in reducing the already small risk of a shark bite / attack. They have set a precedent in how people and sharks can co-exist; making a meaningful contribution to shark conservation and our own peace of mind that someone up there – has got our back.

Shark Spotters is a registered NPO and it is together with sponsors, supporters and donations that make the programme possible. On Wednesday, 27 July 2016, The Two Oceans Aquarium will be hosting an entertaining evening of comedy and a photo exhibition / auction to raise money for Shark Spotters; learn more about their activities, research, and their latest mobile app plans for a better beach experience.

This free event will feature comedic fixes by Nik Rabinowitz as well as nine exquisite photographs by nine of South Africa’s top underwater photographers. Photographs celebrating the Cape’s marine marvels by Allen Walker, Graham Fenwick, John Vowles, Morne Hardenberg, Geoff Spiby, Jean Tresfon, Kate Jonker and Olivia Anderson’s will be on auction at a reserve price of R3,000 per image (printed on A1 Perspex).


Support this kif cause – all money raised benefits Shark Spotters (and ultimately your own safety, to a degree, in CT seas!)
