“Of all the species on the planet, the Great White Shark has undoubtedly achieved a level of evolutionary perfection. it has remained unchanged for 300 million years.
In recent decades, sharks have become a persecuted and threatened species, and man has endangered this magnificent creature’s existence. Today, through conservation and education, this misaligned image is changing.
The Festival of the Great White Shark is a celebration of this change and will create the opportunity for the world to come together, to Gansbaai to the Great White Shark Capital of the World.
The White Shark Festival will be dedicated to educating the public about sharks and the importance of shark conservation, through interactive and hands on programs aimed especially at our youth.”
The Festival of the Great White Shark is taking place October 23 – October 26 in Gansbaii, South Africa, often called the “great white shark capital of the world.”
