SANCCOB recently hosted a Wild About... Marine Conservation Career Week at the centre. The career week was held during the June/July school holidays over two non-consecutive weeks. During week 1 (30th June to 04th July) and week 2 (14th July to 18th July) we hosted learners, aged between 16 and 17, from different schools who each have a passion for conservation and who gave up a week of their holiday to help our rehabbers in and around the centre. For week 1 we hosted 7 learners and week 2 brought in 9 learners in total.
Mandela – “We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in your hands to make a difference.”
On the morning of July 18, approximately 100 people celebrated Mandela Day 2014 with the SANCCOB team. For 67 minutes these brave souls faced the cold and windy weather in an attempt to clean up Lagoon Beach in Milnerton. SANCCOB’s director, Margaret Roestorf, started off the clean-up by welcoming everyone and asking that we always carry the legacy of Madiba throughout our lives, whether it’s for 67 minutes or for 67 years.
