The Two Oceans Aquarium launched a spectacular underwater photographic exhibition this month, entitled “Cape Town’s Underwater Wilderness”, you don’t want to miss this!
On 6 April 2016, the Two Oceans Aquarium launched an underwater photographic exhibition entitled “Cape Town’s Underwater Wilderness”, with spectacular images dedicated to the marine underwater world found off the coast of the Western Cape. The exhibition will only run for April and May and funds raised through the sale of the photos will be donated to Shark Spotters for one of their hugely important marine research project. The exhibition forms part of the visitor experience of the Aquarium and is included in the entrance fee.
Bringing together nine award-winning photographers and showcasing 90 photos, the exhibition not only shows the beauty found below the waves of the Western Cape shores, but also aims to promote diving opportunities around Cape Town. The breath-taking glimpse into the immense beauty of our marine heritage will however, enthral both divers and non-divers alike. Once the exhibition has been concluded, 80 of the photos will be sold at R1000 each. Each photographer’s top photo will be offered up on auction. (Auction date to be announced at a later stage). All funds raised will be donated to Shark Spotters and will be used for a marine research project.
The exhibition is proudly brought to you by Orms Print Room & Framing, Nauticam and Dive Action. “We should all do our part in the preservation of this planet.
