SOSF Shark Centre

The SOSF Shark Centre was established in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2008 to encourage the conservation and awareness of sharks and marine life in the False Bay area. The Shark Centre is a non-governmental organization offering public educational programmes to provide information and challenge myths and misconceptions about these important creatures. The Shark Centre is also committed to supporting local and SOSF funded scientists.

Sharks are vital to the health of our oceans. They play an important role in the ocean by regulating the quantity and health of other species of fish and invertebrates, keeping the ecosystem in balance.

We offer educational outings to school groups focusing on a range of marine topics. Because our programmes are presented by qualified, experienced teachers who are knowledgeable and passionate about their subject, you can expect lessons and activities that are hands-on, age-appropriate and linked to the school curriculum. We also understand that outings need to provide fun and excitement without compromising on the safety of your children.
