The Two Oceans Aquarium partnered with 5fm for the Big Cape Town Cleanup on the 18th of February. Teams of volunteers joined forces at Lion’s Head, Mouille Point, Liesbeek River, Milnerton Lagoon and Joe Slovo to collect rubbish from waterways and beaches.
Our Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) learners got stuck in and joined efforts along the Liesbeek River. These young environmentalists did us proud – contributing to the 1640 kg of rubbish that was collected on the day! It is wonderful to see these dedicated and passionate school children put so much effort into an event such as this, showing the results of mentorship and encouragement coming out of this leadership initiative.
