History

The Two Oceans Aquarium was first opened in November 1995. While the aquarium in Cape Town is all about fun and entertainment, it is also devoted to education and conservation for a number of species of marine life. The staff are involved in a number of important tasks around Cape Town, including freeing seals tangled in litter, assisting injured or stranded starfish and conducting research on harmful fish parasites and other health problems affecting aquatic life. In fact, many of the aquarium’s animals were rescued and are either recuperating from injuries or trauma, or can either no longer live in the wild.
