SANCCOB’s 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. In a non-spill year, SANCCOB treats almost 2 500 seabirds, of which approximately 1 500 are African penguins, at both of its strategically placed centres in Cape Town (Western Cape) and Cape St. Francis (Eastern Cape). The organisation is an internationally recognised leader in oiled wildlife response, rehabilitation and chick-rearing; contributes to research which benefits seabirds; trains people to care for the birds and educates the public to develop behavioural patterns that benefit marine life and the environment.
