Every year around Christmas SANCCOB admits hundreds of small fluffy African penguin chicks abandoned by their parents in the colonies. Without intervention by SANCCOB and its partners in conservation, these chicks would not survive. With less than 2% of the population remaining in the wild today, SANCCOB needs YOUR help to care for these abandoned African penguin chicks. Adopt and name your Christmas chick for R500/$50/€36 and pay for its rehabilitation and release back into the wild. You will receive a photograph of your chick, a certificate of adoption, a thank you letter and a sticker that says ‘I adopted an African penguin’. CLICK HERE TO ADOPT YOUR CHICK
SANCCOB’s Christmas chick special is only valid until 15 December 2014.
