“It has always been our dream to bring the Aquarium and its stories to the people of South Africa. We want to give people a glimpse into what it takes to run this Aquarium, what it takes to keep our standards as high as possible at all times, and what it takes to deliver a tourist attraction of international standards, not only to Cape Town, but also to the rest of the country.” – Helen Lockhart, Two Oceans Aquarium Communications & Sustainability Manager

M-Net's The Wild Ones took our "blue screen" home to the silver screen.
