Mike Barron has recently joined our team at Marine Dynamics as Marine Biologist and guide on our shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin. Mike is also currently doing his Master’s Degree, looking into the effects of visual sign stimuli on great white shark behaviour and has been involved with the Marine biology industry for over 6 years.

He is born and bread in the UK, but Mike decided to make South Africa his home for now in order to follow his passion for the amazing wildlife Africa has to offer. Mike’s is primarily focused on marine conservation, specifically shark behaviour.

It is the observational science of studying natures amazing and ingenious adaptations to their immediate and surrounding environment and using their way of adaptions to create innovative, sustainable approaches to everyday life in the human world.
