On the 11 November, Crocworld Conservation Centre will be hosting it’s final conservation talk for the year which will be presented by Pamela Le Noury. Pam is a Marine scientist, PADI dive instructor zodiac skipper and sailor, and has worked in and on the ocean just about every day for the past 17 years and her talk will focus on ocean conservation.
After leaving school Pam worked in the diving industry whilst studying a BSc in zoology and physiology. In that time she became quite involved in shark, dolphin and whale research through tourism, and started her own whale watching and charter boat business.
“We look forward to ending off our 2017 conservation talks on a high note with Pamela Le Noury and can’t wait to hear the knowledge she has to share regarding ocean conservation. We would like to thank all monthly conservation talk attendees for their support throughout the year. The next series of monthly lectures will resume in February 2018,” commented Crocworld Conservation Centre spokesperson Martin Rodrigues.
Pam has participated in several marine research projects and voyages, and went to sea full time in 2008 in the Expedition Cruise industry, specializing as a marine guide in remote wilderness destinations. She has since travelled to over 120 countries and worked many seasons in the Antarctic and Arctic, South Pacific and, her first love, the Indian Ocean. She became Expedition Leader in 2012 and published three smartphone apps; ‘sharks & rays’, ‘whales & dolphins’ and ‘Antarctic Wildlife’. Pam is now Head of Expedition Operations at Noble Caledonia and still spends most of her time at sea, teaching people about the oceans and conservation through her travels.
Tickets for the talk will cost R75 per adult and R35 for pensioners. Registration and welcoming will begin from 8:30am and the talk will commence at 9:00am. Tickets will entitle guests to complimentary teas and coffees, as well as access to the Crocworld Conservation Centre’s vast grounds and Izinyoni Indigenous Nursery.
