Penguins for adoption


This Valentine's month, adopt a pair of penguins for just R600. One for you and one for your sweetheart. Choose and name your penguins now.

You'll receive an email with two Certificates of Adoption and letters of thanks from 'your' penguins. Your donation helps cover the cost of fish, medication, water and other essentials your birds need to grow strong enough for release back into the wild.
Please note that you are not permitted to visit your penguins during rehabilitation, nor will you be able to track their movements after release. You will however play a vital role in saving the African penguin … and give your adopted birds the chance to live a natural life in the wild, where they belong. Adoptions are valid for one year from the date of issue and adopters are welcome to get in touch to donate to renew it.
