We’ve all heard of the Big 5, but did you know that South Africa  is also home to the Marine Big 5?  The term Marine Big 5 originated in Gansbaai in the Western Cape and refers to the prolific populations of whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and sharks that can be found in this region along the Southern most point of Africa. 

 

 

Did you know that a great white shark may lose more than 1000 teeth in its life time or that adult African penguins form pair bonds that last for life? Check out this cool infographic below to learn more about the Marine Big 5.
