Hundreds of endangered African penguins are heading back into to the wild thanks to the rescue efforts of SANCCOB (the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds) and its conservation partners. Since late October 2014, a total of 570 abandoned African penguin chicks have been rescued from the penguin colonies and admitted to SANCCOB’s seabird rehabilitation centres in Table View (Western Cape) and Cape St. Francis (Eastern Cape).
