Our precious African penguins need your help
Nature’s Valley Trust celebrates MarineWeek this week, and they have an appeal for their supporters. As many of you know, they partner with Tenikwa Wildlife Rehabilitation and Awareness Centre on their penguin rehabilitation efforts.
Tenikwa does an incredible job working long hours to get all stranded penguins in our area ready for release back into the bay. Nature’s Valley Trust facilitates the local beach releases with them, which many of you have been to over the last few years. Penguin rehabilitation is a tricky business, and Tenikwa are the only rehab centre in our region who carry the necessary permits and expertise to do this important work.
Penguins are HUNGRY when in rehab, and the fish used to get them fit and ready for release are expensive. Robberg Fine Foods have joined forces with Nature’s Valley Trust to make a plan to help! We have set up a ring-fenced account where anyone can donate funds that will be used by Tenikwa to purchase fish for penguins and other seabirds.
Please consider making a small donation into the account below, with the reference of TEN002. Birdlife Plettenberg Bay have kick-started the account off with a R2,000.00 donation and we are giving a discount on the price of fish purchased with these funds, enabling Tenikwa to make sure our local penguins get the best possible help!
