The Team

The organisation employs 30 shark spotters and 10 exclusion net crew, all of whom come from previously disadvantaged communities in our operating areas. Shark Spotters focuses on skills development to empower our employees and we provide extensive training for new and existing spotters. With a low staff turnover and high investment in the individual we aim to not only develop experienced and effective shark spotters, but also create ocean ambassadors, who can share their passion and knowledge with local and international visitors as well as their own communities.

THE STRUCTURE OF SHARK SPOTTERS


Shark Spotters is a non-profit and public benefit organisation comprised of members forming two important organisational committees.

The non-executive committee consists of members who represent communities, businesses, organisations and other interest group stakeholders from the areas in which the organisation operates. The non-executive committee provides an oversight and guidance role in the organisation, ensuring that the Organisation is meeting the objectives laid out in the constitution, as well as ensuring those objectives align with the needs of the communities in which the Organisation operates.

The executive committee are the office bearers of Shark Spotters, tasked with the management, growth and strategic development of the organisation. The executive committee works closely with representatives from the City of Cape Town’s Environmental Resource Management Department to ensure appropriate safety services are provided to the water user community of Cape Town, in line with the City’s strategic sustainable development plan.
