Blue Wilderness teams back from almost five months on the road!

The team at Blue Wilderness are back home after nearly five months on the road - or in our case literlally at sea!

The team have been involved in various expeditions and films. These projects have ranged from a jetski expedition around the coast of South Africa in order to raise funds and awareness for cancer. This project was undertaken for Cancer South Africa and sponsored by Acer Computers and Spar as well as many other fantastic and willing partners. The team have travelled from Capetown to Bassas da India on various film projects and research initiatives. The orphans day at Shark Park was a highlight for Blue Wilderness and the participation of the Shark Angels gave the kids huge insight and inspiration for the the future. The highlight of the day was the shark dive with the sharks of Shark Park with the Shark Angels team headed by Julie Andersen.

Sharksboard declare war on Sardine Run 2010!!

Sharksboard have declared war on Sardine Run 2010 by buying more nets and using additional boats to kill sharks over the World Cup showpiece. This flies in the face of South Africa's Tourism authority who added sharks and whales to South Africa's terrestrial "Big Five" last year in an effort to encourage tourists to the soccer showpiece to view South Africa's marine splendour. Sharksboard will kill thousands of sharks, rays and dolphins that follow the sardine shoals at this time of year if they don't take out their nets and drumlines. Public pressure has forced them to do this in the past but they seem hell bent on circumventing the public to continue their murderous spree for financial gain.

To make a difference go to and make your voice heard.

Shark Route teams still getting blown about!

The Shark Route teams in the Cape have been blasted by the late south easterly winds and are having a torrid time. The teams at Shark Park have fared better and record setting freedive instructor Hanli Prinsloo is back conducting her freedive courses. The freedive crew had a phenomenal day with tiger, blacktip and a lone bull shark.
