African Penguin & Seabird Sanctuary

One of our favourite supporters, Shane Sauvage, of the famous restaurant, La Pentola visited the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary (APSS) leaving behind a legacy of R10 000.00

The APSS has been opened for just two years and is making an important impact on the local penguin population of Dyer Island.  It is not possible for us to do this work without the continued support of the public. The penguins are the responsibility of all of us and we can all help make a difference,” says Theanette Staal, manager and veterinary nurse at APSS.
