Adopt And Name
Any Penguin Of Your Choice For R600

It’s the perfect gift and you’ll be helping us give them the very best chance to return back to the wild.

You’ll receive an email with a Certificate of Adoption and a special 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 penguins during rehabilitation, nor will you be able to track their movements after release but if you reconnect with us some time then we can let you know the release date of ‘your’ penguin. You will play a vital role in saving the African penguin … and give your adopted bird the chance to live a natural life in the wild, where the bird belongs. Adoptions are valid for one year from the date of issue and adopters are welcome to get in touch to donate and adopt a new bird.

*Note: Payment may be made from anywhere in the world via PayFast and PayPal. If you have an international credit card endorsed by Mastercard or VISA, you may donate via PayFast too.

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