White shark season has arrived, and with that we welcome MSc student Lacey Williams from the University of Miami. Lacey will be spending lots of time on Robberg Peninsula between May-July to study the predator-prey relationship between white sharks and Cape fur seals in the MPA, in particular the ‘mobbing’ behaviour displayed by seals. Armed with a drone and a BRUV (baited remote underwater video), we have no doubt Lacey will be collecting amazing information on the natural behaviour of sharks and seals during interaction events. While we will be contributing scat samples towards stress level research in seals over this period, volunteers from the Orca Foundation will assist Lacey with her cliff-top observations, and she will contribute sighting data to our long-term research on the seasonal presence of white sharks and seal traffic at the colony. We would like to remind the public that as part of their natural behaviour white sharks actively hunt seal pups in the shallow waters of the peninsula between April and October, during which time numerous individuals are seen travelling between wreck beach and Robberg point on a daily basis. We therefore urge all water users to act responsibly and stay aware of their surroundings when swimming, surfing or paddling near Robberg during this time.
