Wat je gaat doen

Through a selection of images and videos you'll virtually dive into the clear warm waters of a Mozambican marine reserve—home to some very large fish, and even larger sharks.

We'll meet the sharky subjects of 12 years of research and uncover new information on the movement, personalities, and behaviours of the bull shark, their shark cousins, and their favourite food—the mighty giant trevally.

Through this live online experience, you’ll venture out on and under the water to tag and track large sharks. Once we find them, we’ll take skin and blood samples and implant satellite, acoustic, and archival tags.

After we get to know the subjects, you'll learn the logistics of filming them in the water and have all of your burning questions answered (Are sharks aggressive? Do we really want MORE sharks in the ocean!?).

Most importantly, you’ll become part of our efforts to protect and restore marine ecosystems and understand how you can have a positive influence on the world around you.

I’m a passionate marine biologist, eco-optimist, shark guy, and new father. After completing my master’s in marine biology, I co-founded ongoing shark research programs in South Africa and Mozambique. I now support my passions through informed tourism; working on Blue Chip film productions; and supporting research and conservation of sharks and big fish.

My lifelong passion has taken me to work on manta rays in the Seychelles; dugongs in Florida; giant trevally, tiger sharks, and bull sharks in Mozambique; the great sardine run in South Africa; and most recently, the vibrant coastline around Cape Town, South Africa.

I have many experiences, stories, and photos to share.....and answers to most of your questions!

A fantastic experience for ocean lovers! As an avid scuba diver, I'm always looking for new places to explore and help protect. It's so special to have the opportunity to meet and learn from an expert in a small group setting, and to discover a hidden gem that few people know about. (Help keep it a secret!) It's like getting a backstage private all-access pass at a sold-out event/film screening where you meet the producers and have all your questions answered!

Justin truly immersed us into the world below the sea, and his expertise and passion really came through. I learnt a lot of new information about sharks, and the amazing work scientists are doing to ensure we understand more about the ocean and these magnificent creatures. The session was very conversational, and Justin ensured that there was clarity at every step.

We booked as a group and had a lot of fun. Justin was a great storyteller and encouraged us to ask questions, and he clearly knew his stuff! He left us with lots of interesting websites and resources where we can learn more about sharks (and even see where they go in real time!)

Whether you are a shark nerd, an aquarium nut, or just a wanna be scientist, this experience will be fun for you. I learned stuff about sharks that I never would have otherwise and II got to experience what a shark scientist on the other side of the world does on a daily basis. It made me want to learn more about the animals, the region, and the culture. It also made me think about sustainable fishing practices, conservation initiatives, and animal ethics. Definitely worth the time and the donation!

Very interesting and fun experience where I learned a lot about sharks (and other fish) and their natural habitats/behaviors from someone who clearly loves the ocean and his work in and with it. As an added bonus, I got to contribute little bit to ocean conservation as well.
