DIVER 24

Personal message

On March 9th 2019 the University of Cape Town Underwater club will be attempting to have divers in the Two Oceans Aquarium I&J Ocean Exhibit for 24 straight hours! 

The purpose of the dive is to raise awareness and funds around plastic and the effects that it has on marine life. Plastic has become a very real problem with regards to the well-being of the worlds’ oceans and we believe that a united front is necessary to combat this. Currently 16 tons of plastic is thrown into the ocean every day. We have to try and make a difference so that we can continue to enjoy the ocean without having to worry about the devastating effects of plastic. 

We are attempting to raise R1000 for every hour spent in the tank and can only do this with your support. All funds raised will be donated to The Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) and the turtle rescue, rehabilitation and release programme of the Two Oceans Aquarium Education Foundation. Both of which are registered Public Benefit Organisations.
