Our project rescues, rehabilitates and releases stranded and distressed sea turtles as part of our conservation mission. With the support of organisations and volunteers along the Western Cape’s coast, hundreds of sea turtles have been saved, reared to full strength and released back into the wild. Loggerhead and leatherback turtles nest on the South African coast and are common patients of our clinic, we regularly rehabilitate stranded green, olive ridley and hawksbill sea turtles that wash up on our shores.

Oceans in Motion is the a local flagship outreach programme run in Cape Town. Oceans in Motion aims to capture the hearts and minds the children of under-resourced schools around Cape Town who can’t afford to visit local marine education centres such as the Aquarium. The organisation’s people-centred approach to changing human behaviour as a means of combatting the effects of climate change reached 53,329 children in 2018.

A fully run outreach program in partnership with the local Aquarium. We aim to fund an Ocean Bus that will be equipped with professional expert staff and resources and will visit township and under resourced local schools. With our fully equipped mobile aquarium facility, we offer children an unforgettable experience with live marine animals. We hope that the children will appreciate the value of living animals and will contribute to the conservation on their door step

This project is the start of introducing the awareness of marine conservation that is on the door steps. This project aims to inspire the youths to take action and even look to follow a career in conservation. As well as awareness additional trip into Aquariums and other marine educational centres will be funded and access to internships will be made available to students engaged
