Irene & Max Schweizer from Liestal (Switzerland) celebrated their 60th birthdays in a unique fashion by adopting 79 African penguins from SANCCOB for each of their 79 guests attending their birthday event. Held over two days at the Appenberg Hotel in Zäziwil, the Swiss pair requested that their guests bring donations instead of gifts in order to adopt endangered African penguins from SANCCOB, a non-profit seabird conservation organisation in South Africa.
