Once again the teachers with the Voortrekkers Group outdid themselves with their students full of knowledge about our Marine Big 5™.

The Dyer Island Conservation Trust meets with this group every year when they visit the penguin colony at Stony Point. This is a wonderful opportunity to share more about the endangered African penguin especially the penguin housing project, along with telling the students about the great white shark and how important the research is.

The teachers had really prepared them and they had many questions. After they watched a video on how to tag and track a shark, it looks like many of them will be future marine bio-logists.

Very kindly a few of them dug into their pocket money to buy a penguin a home. Thank you Voortrekkers 2013!
