December 10, 2010 by dyertrust
Marine Dynamicsand Dyer Island Conservation Trust were pleased to have Judy and Bruce Mann visit on the 11th December. Judy is the Director of Sea World and Bruce, senior scientist at the Oceanographic Research Institute (South African Association for Marine Biological Research)
It was a perfect day for shark cage diving with great visibility and no less than twelve sharks.
This is what they had to say:
We would like to thank you all for the experience of a lifetime. The shark dive exceeded all of our expectations and we feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to see those amazing animals in such a personal way. After having worked in marine research and education for over 15 years it has become clear that giving people facts is only partially effective we must engage their emotions and build a relationship between people and individual animals the approach ofMarine Dynamicsis an excellent balance of facts, emotions and personal experiences. We were impressed by the whole operation start to finish.
What makes Marine Dynamics even more special is your dedication to conservation, through the Dyer Island Conservation Trust. Throughout the experience we felt that it was about conservation, caring and good work on the ground not just about thrills and adrenaline. The penguin projects, the research and other conservation initiatives makes this operation unique and really worth supporting.
Thank-you everyone at Marine Dynamics and the Dyer Island Conservation Trust.
With kind regards
Judy and Bruce Mann
