A local father and son duo create educational marine life videos on their “Explore The Shore” YouTube channel.

UCT marine biologist, Emeritus Professor Charles Griffiths, and his filmmaker son, Matthew, showcase the magical sea creatures and organisms that live along the coastline.

The duo take viewers on a journey of discovery through their short videos lasting between three and 10 minutes.

Matthew films his dad sharing his knowledge of sea life, from starfish to limpets.

According to a statement released by UCT, the duo plans to release a new episode every other Thursday and have a slate of 50 different subjects to film.

“The resource is free to anyone who subscribes. This includes biology teachers at all levels. It is a useful resource in marine biology, especially for schools away from the coast,” says Professor Griffiths.
