Cape RADD is a marine field station that has an open platform for researchers in the Cape Town and False Bay area and also runs an exciting and educational Citizen Science Day for ocean enthusiasts.
Mike and Dylan are marine biologists who spent the last four years creating student training experiences with an aim to build knowledge and practical capabilities based on their own experience over the past 15 years.
The field courses focus on hands-on experiences, enabling students to build critical thinking skills, understand processes and decisions behind research and retain far more information when compared to a lecture-style environment. “Hands-on experience is more engaging, stimulating, empowering and fun!” says Cape RADD.
“Students get the opportunity of working in a real-world situation with instructors that have a large amount of real-world experience and knowledge. We keep our groups small and personal so our biologists can dedicate themselves to your individual learning preferences. You will leave the Cape RADD field course with a toolbox of skills which will help you find employment and call upon throughout your career as a marine biologist,” Cape RADD adds.
“We are excited to show you this incredible corner of the world, False Bay, a “marine hope spot” a special place that is scientifically identified as critical to the health of the ocean,” Cape RADD concludes.
Book with Cape RADD for a snorkelling activity with a difference. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to become a marine biologist for the day. You can also join the team, along with a friend at just R900 on a shark survey, exploring the Great African Sea Forest while collecting data on the harmless shy sharks of False Bay.
This is an exciting adventure to learn about our planet’s amazing marine life, understand more about the ecology of kelp forests and ask questions as you explore the underwater world and observe all the wonderful creatures within.
