A Token of Appreciation

February 17, 2017 Pinkey Ngewu

After DICT and APSS received a generous donation of R6000.00 from the eager students of Okkie Smuts Primary School in Stanford, the day has finally arrived to take them on a marine adventure with Dyer Island Cruises.

This will be a token of appreciation for the generous and great work they are doing towards saving the endangered African penguin. The school principal Mr Koekemoer with the support of the teacher Mrs Marna Beets and the learners started a coin project as part of the school’s social development programme. It was such an excitement of the learners when they created 2 penguins with coins on the ground. The learners enjoyed the outing and sightings of African penguins swimming and the Cape Fur seals. They were fascinated by the sound the seals make and started imitating them.

Learned more about the Marine Big 5 from their guiding biologist, Sandra and guide Karli #marinebig5#everybirdcount

Looking forward to their continued support and we are proud to be associated with these young upcoming penguin ambassadors.
