Cape RADD are compiling footage from our field days out in the ocean of some of the beautiful and under appreciated species of elasmobranch found here in South Africa. The idea behind this series of videos is to raise some more awareness of the lesser known and under researched species found in South African waters. These videos will be placed on our YouTube and Instagram platforms as a continuing feature as and when we collect footage of them doing their thing. They will give an explanation of the current IUCN status of the species as well as some biological info.
