SANCCOB - Successful Charity 2018


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. 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. In a non-oil-spill year, SANCCOB treats almost 2 500 seabirds, of which approximately 1 500 are African penguins, at of its strategically placed centres in the Western Cape (Cape Town) and the Eastern Cape (Port Elizabeth and Cape St Francis).

Cost: R2 500 per entry. Includes official Adopt a Penguin gift pack (runners can choose a unique name for their penguin) and goodie bag (consisting of SANCCOB-branded shopping bag, baseball cap, fluffy penguin key-ring, postcard and stickers).
