BIRDLIFE OVERBERG RAISES R30000 FOR THE AFRICAN PENGUIN
December 09, 2010 by dyertrust
The past year has seen Anton Odendaal ofBirdlife Overbergon a mission for the African penguin. A golf day held in June at which a real live penguin was in attendance kicked off the fundraising. Through this and the raffle of Angela Keys penguin painting, R30 000 was raised for the benefit of conservation of our now endangered African penguin.
The money was divided between:
- Birdlife South Africas Seabirds Division
- SANCCOB(Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds)
- Dyer Island Conservation Trust
Wilfred Chivell attended Birdlife Overbergs year end function where Anton handed over a cheque for R10 000. This donation will contribute towards efforts involved in research and rescue of our penguins.
The Trust is grateful to Anton for his drive and commitment to the cause and to those who supported the golf day and the raffle.
