This event is provisionally fully booked.

As you may already know, the Queen of the Two Oceans Aquarium, Yoshi the loggerhead turtle, will be released sometime in December. We can’t let her go without a proper farewell, now can we? On Monday 20 November 2017 we’ll be throwing a soirée in her honour and you are invited to join us for an evening of sharing Yoshi memories, Yoshi plans and Yoshi’s future.

All proceeds made on the night will be donated straight back to our turtle rehabilitation and release work.

Your ticket to this VIP-studded event will include a number of informative presentations from turtle experts and Yoshi’s close friends, including world renowned turtle expert Dr George Hughes, as well as a few snacks. A cash bar will be available.

If you're a member of the Two Oceans Aquarium please be advised that you are welcome attend this event at a cost of R95! However, we will also be hosting a special, exclusive member event to say goodbye to Yoshi at another date. Keep a close eye on your email inbox or the members-only Facebook group for details. 

After the farewell party, the Aquarium will begin the countdown to Yoshi’s release. The exact date of her release will not be settled long in advance, as we must watch the weather and be ready to act when the perfect conditions (warmer water and no wind) are the place. A team of Aquarium curatorial staff and animal experts will chaperone Yoshi approximately 30 nautical miles off Cape Point.
