Working for birds in Africa

The above headline, placed over a black-and-white photograph of a white-and-black Jackass Penguin, was featured in South African newspapers in July 1994. This advertisement, sponsored by a local business firm, was placed by the South African National Council for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) to record its thanks to all that had given their time, money and physical labour to assist in the rehabilitation of thousands of these threatened birds, which were victims of the worst oil pollution disaster in the history of Cape Town.
