Jerry Ntombela is the primary aquarist responsible for Nandi’s care at uShaka Marine World. He has been working with her for the past year, feeding her and watching over her every step of the way.

You can see that he cares deeply for her, and while he knows she is getting too big for this exhibit, he hates to see her go. It won’t be all tears for Jerry when Nandi leaves. He’s going with her on his first plane flight, his first time leaving South Africa on the 747-200 transport plane.
