Swimming against the odds: Meet Bokkie the green turtle!
South Africans worldwide are sure to remember the feeling when our national rugby team, the Springboks, won the semi-finals of the Rugby World Cup 2023. Well, the Two Oceans Aquarium Foundation’s Turtle Conservation Centre remembers this moment with an extra special twist: Welcoming a new turtle into rehabilitation!
We released 14 satellite-tagged juvenile loggerhead turtles as part of an international research project!
As an African first, fourteen juvenile loggerhead turtles were tagged and released back into the ocean on 20 January 2024 as part of an international research project. While releases of rehabilitated turtles are a regular activity for the Two Oceans Aquarium Foundation’s Turtle Conservation Centre, this release was significant as each juvenile turtle was fitted with a prototype satellite tag. This is a major milestone for South Africa and the continent, as it is the first time that juvenile loggerhead turtles have been tagged and released in Africa.

Happy Reverse the Red Day!
With many environmental issues dominating the media, particularly climate change, biodiversity loss is an often overlooked, yet just as significant, threat. Reverse the Red is a pioneering global movement that works to reverse biodiversity loss and showcase positive achievements for species on the brink of collapse - by celebrating efforts that bring species back from being "endangered". Today, 7 February 2024, is the second Reverse the Red Day!
The weird and wonderful sunfish: Everything you need to know!
Recently, our Two Oceans Aquarium team was involved in a huge sunfish rescue in the Transnet Robinson Dry Dock. To many, the sunfish is an almost alien-looking animal – with a weirdly shaped body that seems to be missing another half, it could be from another planet. Naturally, the rescue sparked many questions from our Aquarium family: What is a sunfish? Where do they live? What do they eat?
