Penguins for adoption


Adopt one of the penguins below for just R600. Choose and name yours now.

You'll receive an email with a Certificate of Adoption, photograph and letter of thanks from 'your' penguin. Your donation helps cover the cost of fish, medication, water and other essentials your bird needs to grow strong enough for release back into the wild.
Please note that you are not permitted to visit your penguin during rehabilitation, nor will you be able to track its movements after release. You will however play a vital role in saving an African penguin … and give your adopted bird the chance to live a natural life in the wild, where it belongs.

* Multiple adoptions of individual birds enable us to cover the costs of caring for all the penguins at SANCCOB; your contribution will form part of a collective pool of funds to provide food and veterinary treatment for all.
