About Us

THE DYER ISLAND CONSERVATION TRUST was founded in 2006 by Wilfred Chivell. The Dyer Island Conservation Trust delivers unique conservation and research programmes in the fragile and critically important marine eco-system at the southern-most tip of Africa. Here we strive to protect the largest surviving colonies of the endangered African Penguin whose numbers are at an all-time low; the globally important breeding and calving grounds of the Southern Right Whale; and, the world's densest populations of the vulnerable Great White Shark.

Together with eco-tourism partners Marine Dynamics Tours - a shark cage diving company operational since 2005, and Dyer Island Cruises - a whale watching company operational since 2001, the Trust conducts valuable research, conservation and education. The companies hold Fair Trade in Tourism certification and employ marine biologists whose research is in turn supported through the Trust. The companies are essential in fundraising for the Trust.
