Today is our 18th birthday and wow, have things changed! Just have a look at these images.
In 2011, the Shoreline Café at the Two Oceans Aquarium became the first restaurant in Africa to receive the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) chain-of-custody certification.
Recently, it underwent its third audit and has retained this certification. This is good news all round, but what does it mean and what does it take to be an MSC-certified restaurant? Quite a bit, as it turns out!
Short answer? A whole lot.
I think that people automatically assume that if you work in an aquarium, you clean exhibits, look after penguins and feed the animals. But not all the jobs in the Aquarium involve getting wet or pooped on! We have a whole shoal of amazing people keeping the Two Oceans Aquarium going, from financial buffs to excellent educators and everything in between.
Natasha Naidoo is the Two Oceans Aquarium’s new Tourism Client Liaison. She’s been in the job for just over two months now, and we caught up with her to find out more about what she does at the Aquarium.
Water is precious – human beings cannot survive without it. In South Africa, it is also a scarce resource. Locally, laws have been put in place to deter people from wasting valuable water.
