Mariette Hopley, conservationist and co-owner of White Shark Ventures, has recently stepped down as Chairlady of the Executive Committee of SANCCOB in South Africa.
As an international wildlife facilitator and rehabilitator, Mariette has dedicated many years of her life supporting non-profitable organizations such as the following, in wildlife crisis situations; Mariette, appointed as a facilitator, was placed in command of erecting the largest satellite rehabilitation centre in history, to accommodate more than 20 000 oiled penguins. Due to her excellent track record with similar projects in the past and her logistical experience in emergency management, Mariette successfully contributed towards the high success rate achieved during this devastating oil spill. She has similarly contributed towards the success of the Apollo Sea and Cordigliera oil spills off the South African coast during 1994 and 1996. Mariette is a well-respected figure amongst international emergency relief teams worldwide, and as contract member, is on 24 hour call to assist with any wildlife crisis globally. Mariette also dedicates her time to the mitigation of "human impact on aquatic birds, marine life (including sharks) and other wildlife" worldwide, which is achieved through participating in emergency response and rehabilitation. Mariette unconditionally dedicates her time to the education, research and planning of operational wildlife projects and regularly receives invites to give lectures on the successful facilitation and rehabilitation of marine and other wildlife. Some of the groups which she recently addressed in Canada and London, were IWRC and IFAW.
