SANCCOB celebrated World Rangers Day with friends and colleagues at an event hosted by SANPARKS today where all present saluted rangers from across the world with a show of activities including the reading of the Rangers Pledge, the Roll of Honour of fallen rangers, a display with dogs by the Visitor Safety Unit, CIS dog detecting abalone, rhino horn and ivory, and the reading of a very moving poem in honour of these brave and dedicated men and women called ‘A Ranger’s Call’
SANCCOB recently hosted a Wild About... Marine Conservation Career Week at the centre. The career week was held during the June/July school holidays over two non-consecutive weeks. During week 1 (30th June to 04th July) and week 2 (14th July to 18th July) we hosted learners, aged between 16 and 17, from different schools who each have a passion for conservation and who gave up a week of their holiday to help our rehabbers in and around the centre. For week 1 we hosted 7 learners and week 2 brought in 9 learners in total.
