    The Oceans Research Institute, based in South Africa, provides marine researchers of tomorrow with a unique, hands-on experience to learn a wide variety of methods and research approaches to practical marine or terrestrial field research.

    Oceans Research Institute investigates biology and ecology of mega-fauna  that includes sharks, marine mammals, and terrestrial carnivores.  We advise governmental and non-governmental bodies on conservation issues.  We also provide multi-disciplinary practical and theoretical training  for aspiring researchers from internships to postgraduate levels working with partner schools, technical colleges, and universities.
