Divers note a major breakthrough in Grey Nurse Shark research Image Justin Cally
Great conditions at Wolf Rock after a windy start to the winter season. Finally the sea has flattened off and we have had visibility ranging from 15-30m with a temperature of 20 degrees.
Divers have been lucky to see Manta rays circling in groups of five at a time, Eagle rays frolicking amongst over 40 Grey Nurse Sharks and rare sightings of Frog fish.
We have had some experienced film crew working with our awesome dive guides attempting (and succeeding) to capture the movement of a baby inside the shark’s tummy.
We have also discovered, looking back through stock footage, that we have evidence of a shark giving birth at Wolf Rock! This is a major breakthrough in Grey Nurse Shark research and highlights the importance of protected Green zones and marine sanctuaries such as ours.
Wolf Rock is not only a gestation site for pregnant sharks, but also a mating and birthing site for the endangered shark species.
We are privileged to be able to share the site with our regional divers and thank everyone for supporting their local dive shop.
