Hermanus whale festival 2012

October 08, 2012 by dyertrust

Thisis the third whale festival that the Dyer Island Conservation Trust has participated in. The tent space dedicated to the environmental aspect of the festival was greatly increased meaning more conservation organisations could be involved. Under the organisation of Kim Mclean, we exhibited alongside Sanccob, Shark Conservancy, AOCA and many others.

We had the opportunity to talk about our shark research, our African penguin nest project as well as our whale and dolphin studies. We won Best Presentations. Thank you to the judges. Most excitedly, we received the most awesome childrens activity books and birthday calendars from our corporate sponsor, Volkswagen SA. We had just as much fun as the children.
