Excursion to Natal Sharks Board

This excursion proved very informative in that it laid to rest many myths and fears about sharks. The learners soon learnt that sharks were beautiful creatures, mysterious but not sinister.Learners were treated to a presentation on the lifecycle of sharks, how Man is endangering this species of sea life and what we could do to respect each other’s territories. Thereafter, a shark was dissected to show learners the actual shark’s anatomy and they were given the opportunity to touch and see the internal anatomy of the shark. Learners were also addressed on protecting and preserving marine life, on the day to day life of marine biologists and how one can go about studying towards becoming a marine biologist.
