We love working with students in schools but we love it even more when we can show them some of the more incredible places in the world where the biodiversity is unrivalled. Our programme in Cape Town, South Africa builds upon the knowledge gained in the workshops and puts students in the water to see the impact plastic pollution is having on our marine life.
WHAT WE DO...
Outreach in Schools
It is our mission to educate young people about the natural world they live in. We go into schools and deliver assemblies and workshops on plastic awareness including ways to reduce the impact our waste has on the environment. These sessions can be tailored to your school's needs and we can challenge you to fill our unique shark fin crate. Contact us today to arrange a visit to your school

Marine Eco-Tour to South Africa
Students are introduced to the marine life of False bay including stingrays, cape fur seals, whales, sea birds and of course the charismatic great white shark. The week-long adventure includes snorkelling, beach cleans, rock pool sessions, hiking trails, penguin studies (Yes we have a colony of endangered African penguins living right here on the beach!) baboon monitoring, classroom knowledge sessions and shark cage diving. Students become citizen scientists and collect data which contributes to marine projects occurring along the South African coastline.
Every stage of the expedition is carefully planned to accommodate for all students, teachers and parents needs and expectations. Once you have booked your expedition, sit back and relax, we will take care of all travel, accommodation, meals, conservation classes and day excursions. Prices quoted will include two free teacher places based on a group size of 20.
Students will also have the opportunity to join a shark cage dive tour with a shark biologist onboard to accompany the group to answer any questions, talk about the amazing animals and discuss any fears and misunderstandings about the plight and dangers of sharks. This trip offers the potential to view Great White sharks, Bronze Whalers, Cow Sharks and giant stingrays.
Expedition groups will also get the chance to explore the fascinating city of Cape Town. Take the cable car up the famous Table Mountain before trying some of the local cuisines in Cape Town's harbour markets and exploring the shops and museums.
Cape-ED endeavour to allow students the longest possible time in-country and our price covers everything in-country including travel, accommodation, meals, excursions, equipment hire and insurance.
