Shark Night - learn more about these awesome predators

Shark Night at the Two Oceans Aquarium on Tuesday 8 October 2019 – your chance to learn more about sharks from some of the world’s best researchers and practitioners, attending the Southern African Shark and Ray Symposium.

Large fins, rows of teeth, sleek bodies that effortlessly swim through all of Earth’s seven seas … Sharks are amongst the most popular, revered, and mysterious creatures that call the ocean home. These predators exhibit fascinating behaviours and play critical roles in the health of ocean ecosystems.

On the other hand, relatively little is known about sharks, and every day more knowledge is gained, which sheds a light on the lives of these incredible animals.

During the second week of October, the Two Oceans Aquarium will be hosting the fifth  Southern African Shark and Ray Symposium. This symposium is designed for scientists and researchers who specialise in sharks and rays, but with content that is too good not to share – we are making it possible for you to learn more about sharks from some of the world’s best researchers and practitioners at Shark Night on Tuesday 8 October 2019.

Come and learn more about these awesome predators at one of the best venues in Cape Town! Speaking on the night will be

  • Michael Scholl (Save our Seas Foundation),
  • Simon Elwen (Sea Search),
  • Monwabisi Sikweyiya (Shark Spotters) and
  • Jannes Landschoff (Sea Change Project).
