Beakie: A big adventure for a little penguin
13 October 2012 marked a day of celebration for African penguins the world over. While SANCCOB celebrated the day with the release of a group of penguins rehabilitated at SANCCOB back into the wild, Beakie was not that lucky. Knocked down by a speeding vehicle in Simon’s Town (Cape Town), his lower mandible was severely damaged by the impact of the car and his lower beak split in half.
SANCCOB fundraisers a huge success
Dear SANCCOB supporter
It is with great humility that we extend a HUGE THANK YOU to you for helping us make the SANCCOB annual benefit auction and the Simon’s Town Penguin Festival 2012 successful beyond measure.
Your generosity has enabled us to overshoot our target of R240 000/US$30 000, and to raise a whopping R344 100 – the largest amount yet raised in the 12 years that the events have been running.
