As part of the ongoing Heritage Month celebrations, Two Oceans Aquarium will host a unique commemoration focusing on a range of species housed at the aquarium. The aquarium will raise awareness on South Africa’s natural and marine heritage through its online audience, using social media posts and blogs.Renée Leeuwner, spokesperson for the aquarium, says heritage is not just about buildings and artefacts, but also about the country’s endemic animals, marine life and plants that only few people know about.“The more people learn about our natural and marine heritage, the more they will grow to love it, and be inspired to look after it. Whether it is our cultural, traditional or environmental heritage, continued awareness is important,” says Renée. She calls on the public to consider learning about marine heritage and protecting it beyond Heritage Month.Among others, there will be emphasis on the Galjoen, a mid-sized fish, with oval-shaped, flattened bodies with symmetrical dorsal and anal fins, giving them a distinctive “Snapchat logo” shape.The Galjoen is South Africa’s national fish. “There are so many things that we can be truly proud of. We live in an incredibly biodiverse country. “Just look at the City Nature Challenge that took place earlier this year – Cape Town won,” Renée says. V For more information visit: www.aquarium.co.za.
