Every year, South Africa commemorates Arbor Week during the first week in September, however uShaka Marine World is extending this important celebration for the entire month.

This year’s campaign will be held under the theme: “Forests and Sustainable Cities” and, as it’s also heritage month, uShaka is encouraging everyone to plant indigenous trees and plants, which form part of our heritage.

Schools, in particular, are encouraged to plant indigenous trees as a practical and symbolic gesture of sustainable environmental management – with the added advantage of providing learners with loads of shade during break time during those hot summer days.  

So, teachers take note, uShaka Marine world is hosting a competition on their social media platforms. We would like everyone to plant and post on the following platforms, 

One lucky class gets to win a snorkel experience for 30 learners as well as two teachers! So, get out there and start digging. Plant plenty of trees that will benefit your fellow learners for years to come – and then look forward to being chosen as the ones that get to cool off at Sea Animal Encounter Island in our awesome snorkel lagoon.

This competition closes on Monday, September 30th. The prize must be redeemed by Friday, November 29 and must be booked for the entire class on any Monday or Tuesday, once the winner is announced.
