WITH October being national Marine Month, the East London Aquarium launched its Ocean Lifeline Project at the weekend.
The project focuses on raising funds for stranded marine animals rescued by the aquarium.
Buffalo City Metro spokeswoman Bathandwa Diamond said they have found members of the public who assist them with rescued animals, normally want to help an animal even further.
“With this project the public can continue assisting financially, ensuring the animal gets further support and will have the Friends of the Aquarium and aquarium staff assist this animal to the point that there is hopefully a successful release back into the wild.”
In conjunction with the fundraising, there are also unique Sea Friends memorabilia. For more information, visit the aquarium’s Facebook page.
