Qué harás

Dive into the oceans around the Cape Peninsula from the comfort of your home as we learn about the local Cape fur seals that frequent these waters.
Join me on a seal science journey – first learning how to differentiate between the 3 seal groups, and engaging in a drawing activity to help seal the deal and remember this important distinction. Here we will discuss how certain physical attributes can be used to define the different groups, how to easily identify fur seals, and then start meeting these furry friends up close!
You’ll be swum through a biology briefing, learning about where they live, how they insulate themselves (there is a reason they are called fur seals!), meet their pups (and listen to them calling), how they hunt and feed (and virtually meet who hunts them, and who they hunt!), as well as have a chance to observe them swimming and interacting underwater. I’ll talk you through questions you would never have thought might apply to a seal, such as “What is their favourite colour?”, “Why do they eat granite pebbles?” and “Are they really able to garden?” We’ll also discuss local threats to the Cape fur seals, and I’ll help you understand how at-home practices can help reduce global threats to these beautiful marine mammals.
Join me for this 1.5 hour conversation and meet the seals of Cape Town! Join as an individual, share as a family or add to a biology class.

I LOVE! being in the ocean – whether freediving, scuba diving, swimming or exploring tidal pools; and sharing these experiences with others is even more reason to get into the water. As an ex-teacher and avid ocean lover with scuba and freediving credentials based in Cape Town, I’ve guided guests from around the world on multiple marine megafauna expeditions in Southern Africa over the last 4 years. From Cape fur seals, humpback whales, copper sharks and various dolphin species in South Africa, to whale sharks off Mafia Island and Indo-Pacific dolphins in Mozambique, these experiences have helped me combine teaching (outside the classroom!) and my passion for our blue ocean backyard. ‘Learning through shared experiences’ is one of my life motto's and I’d love to share my lessons from spending hours in the water with the Cape fur seals.

Lauren led us on a beautiful and informative tour of the seal colony on the cape of Good Hope. Her knowledge and insight into the subject was fascinating, well supported by photo & some video footage. She was friendly & positive engaging with all ages in our group. It is a truly wonderful experience and a great escape for us folks in Covid lock down here in Melbourne, Victoria. Big thanks!

My sister and I did Lauren's experience together, and we loved it! It felt like we were spending time with a friend, and we learned so much about seals and Cape Town. Lauren shares beautiful photos and wonderful stories. We hope to be able to come to South Africa and meet you in person in the future, Lauren. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

This is an experience you do not want to miss! Lauren is an expert on the topic of seals. Her knowledge combined with her passion make her a superb host. The experience is interactive and we were able to ask questions at any point. We learned about the various types of seals, their pups, habits, the different characteristics between male/female, their biggest threats, and so much more. The pics/videos are incredibly clear and focused. I felt like I was actually there. My favorite pic was of the seals playing with kelp. The time passed quickly as a Lauren took us on an incredible journey!
