October saw SANCCOB celebrate Penguin month. SANCCOB’s Wild About Exploration…Environmental Education Centre hosted a number of exciting educational programmes during this time to teach learners more about penguins and our marine environment. SANCCOB welcomed the Grade 1 learners of Kenridge Primary School for the duration of the month. Learners had the opportunity to learn more about penguins (in the programme Wild About…Penguins) and also about the Treasure oil spill (Wild About…The Big Spill). They also learned how to walk, swim, catch fish and even dance like penguins.
On 30 October, SANCCOB saves seabirds partnered with SANParks - Table Mountain National Park, ARG Design and the Commodore Hotel to host the 11th annual SANCCOB Benefit Auction . Held at the prestigious Clipper Restaurant at The Commodore Hotel (V&A Waterfront, Cape Town), the event was proudly hosted by South African comedian and master of ceremonies, Nik Rabinowitz, together with special guests, Michelle and Riaan Garforth-Venter. Leading the exciting auction proceedings was Matthew Theron from Theron Auctioneers.
