June 16, 2019 Dyer Island Conservation Trust

White shark biologist Alison Towner and Brenda du Toit of the Dyer Island Conservation Trust were privileged to be the speakers at the FynArts Hermanus event ‘Lifestyle Environmental Lunch’ at LaPentola. Chef Shane Sauvage is a committed donor to the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary, a key project of the Trust and all proceeds from the lunch will be donated to the sanctuary. The talk focused on marine conservation efforts that included African penguin conservation, white shark research, environmental education and marine pollution efforts.
“Shane’s continual generosity for our marine life continues to astound us all at the Dyer Island Conservation Trust. His La Pentola family truly are special and continue to help us fight what often seems like an uphill struggle for our marine life. Also a huge thanks to Barbara from Onrus Manor for her fundraising efforts as a further R1710 was donated by guests.”– Alison Towner.
