We woke up to a lovely and misty day. Waddlers love mist, as walking in drizzly, slightly cooler weather is much more pleasant than 30-degree heat. And we actually had a few individuals with a bit of sunburn from yesterday, myself included, and I was not even in the sun that much. I blame my European genes.
On Monday 10 March 2014, 16 waddlers set off on another awareness campaign in support of the endangered African penguin. Where 100 years ago there were more than 1.5-million African penguins swimming around, today there are only 18 000 breeding pairs left to sustain the whole population.
The Two Oceans Aquarium is looking for a dedicated and enthusiastic person to join the Technical team, to assist with the daily operation and maintenance of building systems including air conditioning and life support systems, upgrading of existing exhibits and construction of new exhibits.
Watch My Job is a website that showcases videos of a great variety of careers, along with information about those jobs – including the pros and cons, as well institutions offering relevant courses. The Watch My Job team recently visited the Two Oceans Aquarium to showcase some of the jobs of our team.
Are you ready to get your waddle on for a good cause? Join us for the annual Waddle for a Week, raising awareness of the plight of the endangered African penguin. The event, co-ordinated by the Aquarium’s very own Hayley McLellan, is about taking conservation awareness to the streets.
