Dyer Island Conservation Trust delivers unique conservation and research programmes in the fragile and critically important marine eco-system at the southern-most tip of Africa. Here we strive to protect the largest surviving colonies of the endangered African Penguin; the globally important breeding and calving grounds of the Southern Right Whale; and, one of the world’s largest populations of the mysterious Great White Shark.
The Whale Festival 2010 is the perfect opportunity for the Trust to connect and educate the public on the incredible marine diversity in our area. Together with our eco-tourism partners, Dyer Island Cruises (whale watching) and Marine Dynamics Tours (shark cage diving), we will be exhibiting and hosting interesting talks by our team of marine biologists and invited guests in the Marine Big 5 Conservation Expo marquee.
Talks range from the whales and dolphins in the area, to great white shark behaviour and tagging, whale acoustics, seal research, the African Penguin, and more. There will be an educational children’s slot and a colouring-in competition. The Trust is joined by SASSI (South African Sustainable Seafood Initiative) who have recently revised their seafood list. Learn what seafood is sustainably harvested and make a difference. You will also find recycling bins available at the marquee where you can recycle your plastics, paper, tins and glass.
