70 years of helping people to care for our ocean

It is absolutely wonderful to once again hear the sound of learners’ laughter emanating from the Education Centre. 

31 Grade 11 learners  from Grantleigh School situated just north of Richards Bay, spent the morning with us on a population dynamics course.  The course unlocks the mysteries of fisheries management, carrying capacities as well as population evaluation in a very practical hands on way.

They are the 5th school to have visited us since we reopened and we are delighted to report that bookings are once again flowing in.

According to young Jessica DuPlessis “The course was lovely and my colleagues and I have learned a lot today.  We travelled a long way to get here and this is the first time that I have been in the Education Centre at uShaka Marine World. Population Dynamics is very interesting”.

Their teacher Janet McGrath has been bringing Grantleigh’s Grade 11 students to uShaka Sea World Education for many years.  “This course is most beneficial for the learners as it adds context to the theory they have learned in the classroom” said Janet.

If you are planning on bringing your learners to uShaka Sea World before the end of this year, or the beginning of next year,  we suggest contacting us soon as under the current regulations, we are currently only able to accommodate a maximum of 100 learners per day.
