Working for birds in Africa

The plight of the African Penguin is now pretty serious

A group of us met at Gansbaai for a workshop recently. Among the things we did was an oil spill simulation exercise --- the first ever --- so if there is an oil spill impacting penguins this winter we are better prepared.

Another thing done at the workshop was to produce the "Gansbaai Declaration", reproduced below.

Please support the penguin conservation effort in whatever way you can, e.g. at SANCCOB, or the Dyer Island Conservation Trust's initiative to provide artificial penguin nests http://www.dict.org.za.
