Marine Dynamics Discovers, Protects, and Educates

Science based approach to conservation

The ocean represents different things to many people – for us, the ocean is our life and conserving this marine environment is our priority. Our philosophy is to have evidence based scientific knowledge of the species and ecosystem we have the privilege to work with.

Our marine biologists have built a database that spans over two decades and produced numerous research papers in collaboration with universities globally, thereby bridging gaps in our knowledge.

We trust our findings can and will inform thoughtful policies at government level that will better protect these precious marine species and their fragile marine world. This is our calling and every day we aim to ignite wonder and connect hearts to the ocean.

Transforming our world

Our Conservation Projects

Ongoing monitoring of white sharks through sightings records and tagging. In addition to analysis of existing data it is essential to determine the threats white sharks face. We are involved in environmental parameter monitoring and daily observational data contributing to population studies, tagging and tracking, behavioural surveys, and wound healing studies.
Management of a world class African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary, and the ongoing nest project to improve fledgling success.
Sightings data, feeding and genetic studies on southern right whales. Critically, we are part of the South African Sousa project contributing data of the endangered humpback dolphins.
