Scientists know that they are coming here to feed, but what makes Ningaloo so attractive to hungry teenage whale sharks? Lara Marcus Zamora has spent the past two years with these beautiful creatures trying to unravel the answer to this question.

Recently we interviewed Monwabisi Sikweyiya the Field Manager of the Shark Spotters in Cape Town about the programme.
Monwa was born and raised in Khayalietsha, a township in Cape Town, South Africa. As a child he enjoyed swimming at school and so at the age of 16 he joined Western Province Life Saving Club. In November 2004, Monwabisi was approached to be the first shark spotter at Muizenberg beach. He has been with the programme from the very beginning, moving up through the ranks and is now the Field Manager, making sure that the program runs smoothly on the ground. Monwa has developed an unrivalled passion and dedication to sharks over the years and has helped to make the Shark Spotting programme the success that it is today.

In this episode we follow Maxine, a ragged tooth shark with an extraordinary true-life story. She escaped death twice, first in shark nets and then being caught by fishermen, before arriving at the Two Oceans Aquarium in 1995 where she stayed for nine years. She was then released back into the wild in March 2004. Maxine is the inspiration behind a shark conservation project based at the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town, South Africa ). Our next podcast episode will take a look at the beautiful and majestic giant manta rays found off the coast of Mexico.
