VOORTREKKER SCHOOL SUPPORT THE ENDANGERED AFRICAN PENGUIN
October 10, 2010 by dyertrust
Every year, the Voortrekkers Grade 7s enjoy an educational time at the African penguin colony at Stony Point (Bettys Bay). Led by educator Danna Smith and her team, the children get to learn all they can about this endangered species.
They also support the Dyer Island Conservation TrustFaces of Need penguin nest project. Brenda from the Trust went along to present their certificate and share more knowledge on the current status of the penguin and its decline of around 100 birds per week over the last 30 years. The children enjoyed a quiz and had just as many questions.
It was good to know there are a few future conservationists in the group.
