Steve Pike of Wavescape with Maryke Musson of Two Oceans Aquarium Pic: Andrew IngramWe have a great relationship with Two Oceans Aquarium and they make a generous donation every year. This year they chose to support our Pink Rescue Buoy project and invited Wavescape along to match locations of these Pink Buoys with surf webcams - so that surfers on the water (and surfers on the web) can help us keep an eye on them.They have very generously sponsored 9 Pink Rescue Buoys, which translates to an impressive R25,000 project.The locations are:
  • 7th avenue slip Melkbosstrand
  • Table View (webcam hosted by Primi Piatti)
  • Big Bay, Blouberg (webcam hosted by Big Bay Lifesaving Club)
  • Noordhoek Beach as well (webcam hosted by African Encounters)
  • Kommetjie Long Beach (webcam hosted by The Last Word)
  • Clifton 1st Beach (webcam is actually on 4th Beach but there is a greater risk on 1st Beach)
  • 2 at Muizenberg (webcams hosted by Corner Surf Shop and another Gary’s Surf School)
  • Strand main beach (webcam hosted by Strand Lifesaving Club)
Each pole has a unique location number and an emergency phone number. If you notice that the Pink Buoy is missing or has been tampered with - please let us know by calling NSRI head office, Two Oceans Aquarium or the emergency number on the sign.Curator of Two Oceans Aquarium, Maryke Musson, says: 'I am always fascinated by ordinary people doing extraordinary things – and the NSRI’s Pink Rescue Buoy drive has not only contributed to saving 11 lives since the launch in November 2017, but has given ordinary by-standers the ability to safely help ! As friends and long-standing partners of the NSRI, we are thrilled to be able to support this incredible drive. As ocean passionate people and surfers we also know we will be backed by the entire surf community – and therefore selected beaches for our sponsored Pink Rescue Buoy roll-out with good surfer presence and of course Wavescape surf-cams to help the NSRI keep more eyes on ocean conditions as well as these rescue buoys. We would also like to acknowledge and thank the more than 1,000 volunteers who assist in ocean rescues, teach water safety, and very often help us save marine wildlife. This is an extraordinary organisation and very deserving of our and your support.'Collectively we are a group of people who love the ocean - keeping the ocean alive, the animals in the ocean alive and the people who play in the ocean alive.We're planning an 'Oceans Alive' event at the Two Oceans Aquarium on 20th April.
