On Tuesday night, 28 May 2013, SANCCOB (the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds) inaugurated its new facility in Cape St. Francis. As announced earlier this year, Penguins Eastern Cape (PEC) has been successfully amalgamated with the world–renowned seabird conservation organization and will henceforth operate as SANCCOB St. Francis Centre at the facility next to the lighthouse. At a jam packed meet-and-greet event, held at the St. Francis Resort, penguin lovers from the region met old friend, made new ones, and were treated to a series of conservation-related talks.
SANCCOB is hosting a ‘local volunteer information open day’ on 25 May 2013 at the SANCCOB centre in Table View, Cape Town. SANCCOB invites local volunteers from the greater Cape Town area to attend one of the two information sessions (10h00 and 11h00) to find out more about the various volunteering opportunities available at SANCCOB.
