Hello, I'm Jen, and it is so nice to meet you!

I'm an activist for SANCCOB (Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds) and have always been passionate about the welfare of birds.

Right now, we need your help in raising much-needed funds to help build the new and better SANCCOB Seabird Hospital.

Construction of the new hospital has started in March 2017.

The new hospital will include, among other things, two new Intensive Care Units, a three-part oiled seabird wash bay area, surgery, x-ray room, upgraded pens, aviary, pools and a laboratory

Help us today in continuing on the path of saving the endangered African Penguins and other Seabirds. Join our Seabird Superhero family, and help us create a beautiful legacy for future generations.

I will be committing to 500km of cycling per month, in exchange for bricks. A donation of R50 (US$5) will secure one brick for the project. A donation of R500 (US$50) will secure 10 bricks and will give me the much needed courage to break through the 500km boundary. Any donation will be received with heartfelt gratitude.
