Dr. Alison Kock - Notes From the Field

We've arrived at Seal Island, stunning flat and calm conditions. Let's hope we see some sharks!

Here's Seal Island, in the breeding season there are 70 000 cape fur seals present. The sharks arrive at the island when the young of the year are starting to venture away from the island. Today we saw 3 white shark-seal predations. Lots of sharks around, but not so many seals leaving today.
