The global response to Covid-19 has had a massive impact on many marine research programmes all over the world. The dedicated cliff-top monitoring project that was started on Robberg Peninsula in January 2018 now has a significant gap in its survey effort since April 2020. This would have been the third consecutive season of a three year project that utilizes field assistants and international volunteers from the ORCA Foundation to help us monitor seals and sharks within Robberg MPA. Fortunately our analyses on white shark data collected over the past two years are already revealing interesting seasonal sighting rates, with some monitoring sites experiencing over 2 sightings per hour in winter. Combined with boat-based surveys on monthly sighting rates of shark-inflicted wounds on Cape fur seals at the colony and carcasses washed ashore on Plett beaches, this makes for an interesting study at this unique location. We look forward to share detailed results once the work is published. In the meantime, white sharks continue to patrol their seal hunting grounds along the north face of Robberg Peninsula, this year for the first time undisturbed by boat traffic since the return of Cape fur seals over two decades ago.
