September 19, 2011 by dyertrust

Isa Carstens Academy supports theAfrican penguin. Known in Stellenbosch for their black and white uniform, they long ago earned the nickname of penguins.

With their latest donation to the Trust of R11 852 (a collection from students matched by the Academy), they now own 40 penguin homes. The Trust established the housing project for penguins in 2006 and to date over 1000 nests have been placed on Dyer Island, Robben Island, Boulders, Stony Point, Ichaboe and more. Donations also go toward supporting valuable studies on the penguins and to their rescue and rehabilitation.

Brenda Walters, Operations Manager, from the Trust was given the opportunity to present to Isabel Roos and her students.

The Trust extends much gratitude to Isa Carstens Academy and looks forward to the next planned eventwatch this space.
