Penguins for adoption


This Valentine's month, adopt a pair of penguins for just R600. One for you and one for your sweetheart.

You'll receive an email with two Certificates of Adoption and letters of thanks from 'your' penguins. Your donation helps cover the cost of fish, medication, water and other essentials your birds need to grow strong enough for release back into the wild. Just because it’s Valentine’s month, you will receive a second penguin adoption that you can gift your loved one with. That’s right! 2-for-1. We will connect with you to choose a second bird.
Please note that you are not permitted to visit your penguins during rehabilitation, nor will you be able to track their movements after release. You will however play a vital role in saving the African penguin … and give your adopted birds the chance to live a natural life in the wild, where they belong. Adoptions are valid for one year from the date of issue and adopters are welcome to get in touch to donate to renew it.

* 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.
