uShaka Marine World celebrates National Science Week
We all know that science is part of our everyday lives and can’t imagine life without fridges, computers, cars, cellphones and televisions to highlight a few.  We don’t however, always fully appreciate our own personal contributions to science. 

By visiting the Science Week Marine exhibition in the uShaka Marine World Village Walk Mall outside Dangerous Creatures between 9am and 5pm this weekend (5 and 6 August) you will have the opportunity to learn more about how our everyday choices contribute to the marine world. 

Not only are we benefitting from science just by being an active participant in the world, we can easily go a step further and participate in citizen science projects.   

One such project is the Oceanographic Research Institute (ORI) Tagging Project.  Many fishermen also participate in Catch and Release (returning under-sized fish).  Another is the Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative (SASSI). These are projects we can all participate in by thinking like a scientist when we catch or purchase seafood.

As proud South Africans, we all want to play our part in the science of marine conservation – visit the exhibition and the scientists will show you how. Entry is free into the Village Walk Mall.
