The Two Oceans Aquarium has employed a ninja to tackle the plastic problem faced by the seals in the harbour and today he seriously proved his worth!


Cape Town, South Africa (28 January 2020) –  Rethink the Bag SA is a campaign that was launched by the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town to help fight the amount of plastic in the ocean. The Twitter account shares stories relating to plastic and the work to get it banned. Their main aim is to have single-use plastic bags banned in South Africa.

Recently the Two Oceans Aquarium shared a video of their seal ninja. The master of stealth has one job, and that is to catch the plastic caught on seals in the harbour.

The video, while super exciting, highlight how bad plastic bags are, especially when they end up in the ocean. There are a number of ways to prevent plastic from harming sea life.

  • Don’t buy plastic bags, take your own reusable ones.
  • Pick up litter when visiting the beach.

The video is rather creepy at first, it takes a moment to realise what you are looking at then all of a sudden you see a face emerge from the dark water and in a flash, the ninja has removed the plastic bag stuck around the seal’s neck.

It’s a blink and you might miss it moment. Take a look below. (PS: watch until you spot the Ninja)
