PIK ‘N WYN Fun(d)raiser 21 April

Gansbaai Courant

The Pik ‘n Wyn event will be a delicious food and wine pairing affair in aid of the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary. The evening combines  the  talents of chef Shane Sauvage of La Pentola and Creation Wines, both award winners. Sauvage has written three cookbooks, the most recent Cape Fusion will be on sale at the event. Creation Wines recently developed the African Penguin Reserve wine with a percentage of sales going to the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary (APSS).  The sparkling event with live entertainment takes place at the Great White House in Gansbaai, the only place where you can eat under a whale skeleton.

It’s been a decade of achievement for the Dyer Island Conservation Trust with its driving approach of effective scientific research that can influence conservation decisions for the critical Dyer Island ecosystem in Gansbaai, Western Cape. Key to the success has been the support of the local community and  the  clients  of eco-tourism businesses Marine Dynamics Shark Tours and Dyer Island Cruises who have financially supported the work. The African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary, a project of the Trust, has in its first year successfully saved more than 90% of the 114 endangered African penguins and various other seabirds. However, this new development has come with increased costs to the trust and fundraising efforts have been stepped up to ensure smooth operations at APSS.

The event costs R400 per ticket of which a portion will go towards APSS. It is hoped that more can be raised through a charity auction at the event. With an estimated 18000 breeding pairs of African penguin left, a drop of over 60% in numbers from 30 years ago, we make a plea to all to support our penguins in peril.
