We are Cape RADD! - (Research and Diver Development). A small team of Marine Biologists, wildlife enthusiasts, photographers and passionate conservationists! With a mission to spread passion and knowledge of the marine world far and wide in the hope that we inspire a change and ultimately conserve our wild blue spaces and their inhabitants. 

It all started in October 2017 I (Founder - Mike) moved to Cape Town, South Africa with his Girlfriend (Jessie) from the UK and our good friend Dylan, also a marine biologist and Co-founder,  joined us. Together we started a small marine biology research organization in the quaint fishing town of Simons Town, the gateway to False Bay and the big marine 5! 

Cape RADD is a marine field station that serves as a platform for researchers in the Cape Town and False Bay area. We specialise in long-term projects that serve to monitor the biodiversity of a global hotspot with more than 3500 endemic marine species. Our research includes assessing the success of different management strategies in Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), monitoring the diversity and abundance of marine species, white shark population estimates, shark deterrent strategies, and some large-scale citizen science programs.

 At the core of our values is passing on our expertise to early career scientists and spreading our passion and enthusiasm for the marine world to the next generation of ocean ambassadors through fun and adventure. When were not in the water, we spend lots of time going into schools, dive clubs, University groups, and talking with business leaders about our work and the marine conservation issues. 

As a Cape RADD Patreon you will join our marine community, helping spread knowledge and passion to all corners of the world. You will get exclusive first views of films and vlogs, be able to sponsors research projects and get personal shout outs along the way to show our appreciation of your support.
