The Save Our Seas Foundation (SOSF) has been a proud sponsor of the Wavescape Festival for over ten years. By partnering with Wavescape, we can raise awareness about our oceans and the various threats to sharks. The foundation has regularly found creative ways to engage with the local ocean-loving communities in Cape Town during the event to help foster healthy attitudes towards sharks.
This year, we were excited to bring back our outreach beach event, Save Our Seas Foundation’s BeachReach, which brought together our Shark Education Centre and SOSF partners Shark Spotters, for a fun-filled day of interactive learning with the youth from The 9Miles Project in False Bay, Cape Town.
The BeachReach event aimed to teach the 9 Miles Project children to love sharks instead of fear them while creating future custodians for our oceans through specially designed games and activities, with the help of our Shark Education Centre and the Shark Spotters. By engaging with new places and learning in meaningful and fun ways, we believe that these kids will begin to love their oceans, building the desire to protect them.
Thank you to the Shark Education Centre, Shark Spotters and the 9Miles Project for making this such an incredible day for all.
