The endangered African penguin is the only penguin endemic to the African continent. Less than 2.5% of the population remains in the wild today. Start your own fundraising campaign and help raise much-needed #penniesforpenguins in support of SANCCOB's rescue and rehabilitation efforts of this iconic species.

Givengain is a safe and secure platform where supporters can use a variety of ways to raise funds on behalf of SANCCOB like running a race, hosting a cake sale, selling art or something simple like cycling to work for a month and getting family and friends to sponsor each kilometer. Every cent raised will support SANCCOB’s rescue and rehabilitation efforts with African penguins.

Less than 2,5% of the population remain in the wild today. Together with its conservation partners and dedicated volunteers, SANCCOB admits approximately 1 500 endangered African penguins every year for rehabilitation to its two centres in South Africa - Cape Town (Western Cape) and Cape St. Francis (Eastern Cape).

Start your campaign and share your activities on social media and tag SANCCOB in your tweets and posts. Remember to use the hashtag #penniesforpenguins.
