Oceans Research Unit in Mossel Bay, South Africa

African Campus is offering an opportunity for undergraduate students of all levels to become a member of the Oceans Research Unit in Mossel Bay, South Africa.

The renowned Oceans Research Internship offers a 'once-in-a-lifetime' opportunity for students to gain hands on practical training in conducting  research on South Africa's marine mega-fauna, including the great white shark. Interns join our scientists daily on their research expeditions to  conduct groundbreaking research and experiments involving Mossel Bay's sharks and marine mammals.

Being a part of this internship, students will gain valuable insight and training in the latest research techniques and seamanship to equip them with the skills necessary to be a successful marine biologist.

If you feel that this opportunity is something that may be interesting or  beneficial to your students, please feel free to pass this information onto them and I would be happy to supply more information.
