Seal and killer whale work is not only physically difficult and logistically challenging, it can be expensive! Foraging ecology studies aided by satellite-linked tracking is particularly demanding on our limited budget. Yet it is central to addressing many of our research questions and assisting our conservation efforts.

WE APPRECIATE DONATIONS THAT ENHANCE OUR ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND WHERE THESE MARINE MAMMALS FORAGE. Donations can be securely transacted through our University of Pretoria endorsed Give 'n Gain link (on the right of this page) and individuals or companies that require tax certificates for their not-for-profit donations can contact us. 

 

 

The National Research Foundation of South Africa is the vehicle through which the Department of Science and Technology provide research funding and permission to do the work we do at Marion Island. There are close links with the South African National Antarctic Programme (embedded within the Department of Environmental Affairs) that provides logistical support for field personnel and access to and from Marion Island.

Logistical support for field personnel and access to and from Marion Island is provided through SANAP
