Penguin Conservation

What is SANCCOB?

It’s an acronym for The Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds. Long name, but a great worthy cause.

This non-profit seabird rehabilitation center is based in Cape Town, South Africa. They are internationally recognized for their rehabilitation efforts.

Treated over 85,000 birds since inception in 1968. In addition to rehabilitation, especially for threatened species, they aim to raise awareness about conservation through education. Find more info at
