Pik 'n Wyn - A Party To Support Our Penguins In Peril

March 31, 2016 by dyertrust

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.

Its 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.
