South African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds
Registered Charity Number: NPO 003-134
Saving seabirds since 1968.
"SANCCOB is a registered non-profit organisation whose primary objective is to reverse the decline of seabird populations through the rescue, rehabilitation and release of ill, injured, abandoned and oiled seabirds – especially endangered species like the African penguin.
The organisation works closely with colony managers to identify birds in need of care in the wild and bring them to one of our two centres in South Africa: Cape Town (Western Cape) and Port Elizabeth (Eastern Cape)"
Did you know that Mandarin word for penguin roughly translates to 'business goose' because of their 'tuxedo' print? That's adorable! An ancient breed of penguins could grow up to 1.5m, it's called the Icadyptes Salasi. Interested in more fun stuff about penguins? Check out the blog!
