Big thanks to Ray D Chaplin, a WWF/SASSI and SA Shark Conservancy ambassador and Two Oceans Aquarium member.
On Saturday 15 August, members of the Two Oceans Aquarium enjoyed a privileged peak behind the scenes of the Aquarium.
The breakfast with the curatorial team is exclusive to members and happens once a year. It's part of a full schedule of members-only events that forms part of the experience. This is our members' chance to pick the brains of our curatorial staff and to ask those questions they've been dying to ask.
After breakfast at Shoreline Café, the behind-the-scenes tours kicked off and were led by Curator Michael Farquhar, Assistant Curator Claire Taylor and Specialist Technician Vince Calder.
Just some of the highlights included a peak at our turtles in rehabilitation (including Bob himself), an update at our new-exhibit-in-progress, and in-depth explanations of our filtration and temperature control systems.
