It is with sadness that we say goodbye to one of the greatest wildlife rehabilitators we have known. Jay has been an inspiration to many of us at SANCCOB, and we honour him for all that he has taught us.
Every year, SANCCOB (the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds) admits between 800-900 abandoned African penguin chicks and eggs for rehabilitation and release back into the wild. SANCCOB is appealing to the public to dig deep into their pockets to help raise funds to build a nursery which will house the larger penguin chicks. The addition of a nursery will add much needed capacity to the current Chick Rearing Unit which is over-flowing with hungry penguin beaks.
