3. Preparation Workshop - Besingazi Ngokusiyazi

We had an adventurous day today!
It was somewhat of a knowledge cram. Thanks to Ulf Kaschl (visitor of Germany and biology teacher, who already visited us two weeks ago) for imparting his knowledge on ocean currents and marine life, particular in South Africa.

We adventured out to Granger Bay Beach looking at Kelp and other animals that live in the sea, but also at waste and litter spoiling Cape Town's precious coastal enviroments. Did you know that a turtle dies when it confuses a plastic bag with a jelly fish?

Furthermore we made our way to the Two Oceans Aquarium ( where we went around looking at the different creatures and also talked about the Great White Shark - its behaviour, habitat and its supposed danger to human life (here you find more information on the Great White Shark We also witnessed the feeding of the fish predators at 3 p.m.

Cherish every opportunity you get in life.
