SOS Oceans of Life Photographic Exhibition

One of the things I enjoyed the most at the Ushaka outing was listening to Judy’s wealth of knowledge about the aquarium and the oceans in general. She has kindly invited all members to attend a special lecture at the Sea World Education Centre as well as an exclusive first visit to “The Oceans of Life Photographic Exhibition”. I’ve attended a similar event in the past and highly recommend it.
