New Seabird Hospital

Donate a brick and help SANCCOB save endangered African penguins and other seabirds

Our seabird centre in Table View, Cape Town has been in operation for 33 years and has served the needs of more than 95 000 seabirds. But the elderly buildings and facilities are now in desperate need of renovation. And we need your help to raise the necessary funding to build a new and better seabird hospital.

Donate one (or more!) ‘bricks’ for just R50 each and be part of taking our vital work into the future.

Apart from increasing capacity (we currently admit around 2000 seabird patients every year), the new facility will include :

  • a Surgery
  • Intensive Care Unit
  • X-ray Room
  • Admissions Area
  • Laboratory
  • Medication Room
  • Wash, rinse and drying bay (to clean oiled birds)
  • 3 New Pools
  • Aviary
  • Several Pens and Preparation Areas

Whilst the majority of the funds for the rebuild have already been secured, we need an additional R5 million to complete the project. Construction has begun and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2017.

As the biggest development in SANCCOB’s almost 50-year legacy, we hope you will be part of this exciting project by using the form below to make your donation right now. Thank you!
