SANCCOB in the Eastern Cape hosted its annual coastal clean-up event for Mandela Day on 18 July, from Shark Point to Mostertshoek, St Francis. In spite of the cold Cape St. Francis weather, a 120-strong crowd joined the event and dedicated 67 minutes of their time to collect rubbish and pollution along this precious stretch of coastline.

On Sunday, 28 June, SANCCOB released a second group of African penguins rehabilitated at its centre in Cape St. Francis after a recent mystery oil spill hit the two Algoa Bay (Port Elizabeth) colonies. One of the lucky penguins was first banded in 1997 on Bird Island for research purposes, making him a full 19 years old.
