Bokkie’s story is just one example of the horrendous impact that plastic waste has on marine life and the pressing need for conservation.of plastic waste pouring into the sea every year, most people recognise that there is a serious problem. Another danger is when sea life becomes entangled in large pieces of plastic like fishing nets, with smaller fish ingesting microplastics which eventually enter the food chain to be consumed by humans.

Another speaker at the ocean protection awareness event hosted by Prescient at the Two Oceans Aquarium, was entrepreneur Mama Yandi, owner of The Masi Creative Hub, who saw an opportunity in recycling waste and now owns a global waste recycling business. Prescient Group CEO, Willem Venter, says engrained in the business’s DNA is the belief that partnerships, like the one Prescient has with the Freedom Paddle, can drive sustainable change. He underscored the importance of collective engagement in having a meaningful impact through education.
