AFRICAN PENGUIN

SAVE OUR FEATHERED FRIENDS

Help us rebuild the endangered African penguin population by sponsoring a penguin home to enable fledgling success or support our rehabilitation efforts at the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary. If we wish to turn around this devastating decline we need your help. #EveryBirdCounts

 

Great White Shark

PROTECT OUR SHARKS - THEY NEED IT

As a result of adequate tracking data over a reasonable time period and better understanding of the white sharks usage of Gansbaai's shallows, we can more effectively protect the white shark and its specific key foraging areas whilst informing and protecting beach users. Interactions between other marine life and great white sharks can be determined and communicated to scientists in various marine life fields, which presents the unique opportunity to network and assess the white sharks role within the entire marine ecosystem. #ScienceSavesSharks

 

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

We need your help to continue our tracking studies. If we can better understand our great white sharks, we can drive conservation decisions for this vulnerable species at a government level. Your donation helps sponsor tagging equipment and all logistical support surrounding this project.
