An estuary is the meeting place of a river and the sea, and is characterised by the interaction between the two. Join Professor Alan Whitfield, Chief Scientist at SAIAB and an experienced estuarine ecologist, on his annual guided tour of the estuaries between the Great Fish and Kowie rivers, highlighting the different types of estuaries and some of the animals and plants living in these specialised systems.

Professor Alan Whitfield is Chief Scientist at SAIAB. His research interests are the biology and ecology of fishes in estuaries in Southern Africa and he is the author of the book Biology and Ecology of Fishes in Southern African Estuaries.

Please note: The bus leaves promptly at 08h30 and this is a half-day excursion. Participants should bring a windbreaker, sun hat, sun screen, a snack and drinks.
