SANCCOB - saves seabirds

SANCCOB is a registered non-profit organisation with the primary objective of reversing the decline of seabird populations through the rescue, rehabilitation and release of ill, injured, abandoned and oiled seabirds – especially endangered species like like the African penguin.

SANCCOB provides a 24/7 rescue service for sick and injured seabirds and abandoned seabird chicks. We respond to oil spill disasters along the South African coastline. SANCCOB is recognised internationally as a leader in the field of seabird rehabilitation. We treat an average of 2,500 injured, sick and oiled seabirds annually. Our specialist chick rearing unit saves African penguin eggs and chicks that have been abandoned, for subsequent release back into the wild. SANCCOB works with various stakeholders to ensure authorities take appropriate preparedness action to mitigate oil spill risks. 

      We offer various engaging lessons for children and adults, including tours of the facilities, presentations and interactive, learning programmes for school groups. We also offer 3 and 6-month internships for adults, as well as a zoo and aquarium keeper exchange programme and veterinary experience courses.

Ongoing research increases our understanding of seabird species’ behaviour, diseases and other factors that impact their long-term survival. SANCCOB employs conservation staff in colonies in the Western Cape and Eastern Cape of South Africa that are under the protection of conservation authorities to monitor seabirds.

Get Involved: Whether you donate time, talent, items or cash, you will assist SANCCOB to make a difference to the survival of the endangered African penguin and other seabirds in distress.

We would love you to join us on Saturday 10 February as together we get out in the fresh air, and have some fun, all while raising money for our beloved penguins!



We are passionate about seabird conservation and invite you to partner with us.
