Pioneers of Change

Georgia French

Visiting Biologist

Georgia is involved in biopsies of great white sharks in Gansbaai and visits throughout the year to obtain the necessary data.

“My PhD is based on looking at the ecological and conservation implications of individual behavioural differences in white sharks. I’m combining behavioural data with morphometrics and stable isotope analyses to investigate the ecology of individual white sharks, providing a greater understanding of the species’ requirements in terms of conservation action.

My love of sharks was borne from fear that led to fascination. I have been enthralled by sharks from an early age and after snorkelling with my first one in the wild, there was no going back for me! They are intelligent, inquisitive, impressive and beautiful animals that deserve nothing but our utmost respect and steadfast protection.”
