AFRICAN PENGUIN & SEABIRD SANCUARY
Founded in 2006 by Wilfred Chivell, the Dyer Island Conservation Trust delivers unique conservation and research programmes in a fragile marine and critically important marine eco-system. We strive to protect the largest surviving colonies of the endangered African Penguin whose numbers are at an all-time low; the globally important breeding and calving grounds of the Southern Right Whale; and the world’s densest populations of the vulnerable Great White Shark.
SEABIRD & PENGUIN REHAB CENTRE
In 2005, Carol Walton opened the Sea Bird and Penguin Rehab Centre (SAPREC), just outside of Mossel Bay, South Africa. Run singlehandedly by Carol, SAPREC has become integral to local penguin conservation. SAPREC is responsible for saving thousands of penguins, gulls, gannets, and other local seabirds in the ten years since it opened.

The Arctic is home to incredible animals found nowhere else in the world. All of them depend on sea ice to survive. The amazing land animals that call the Arctic home include polar bears, foxes, reindeer and oxen, many of which are endangered. In fact, experts warn that polar bears could completely disappear from the Arctic in the next 100 years if we don’t take action soon. And there are equally wonderful creatures living in Arctic waters.
