Did you know the African penguin is more endangered than the White rhino? Our world could be without them in 15 years.

This beautiful image was taken at Foxy Beach by David Crookes from Crookes & Jackson for Getaway’s October Portfolio.

Less than 18000 breeding pairs now humour our coast with their comedic waddle.

We could help the population grow by supporting the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds‘ (SANCCOB) and help build a new seabird hospital in Cape Town.


Buy a brick and win

Donate a brick towards the new seabird hospital for just R50 each and help SANCCOB build a better future, where African penguins and other seabirds flourish.

When you donate, you stand the chance to win a signed artwork of African penguins by incredible photographers, Crookes & Jackson.

David Crookes and Nicola Jackson have lived on two continents, collaborated for 23 years and travelled to more than 60 countries together. Both have Honours degrees in Fine Art as well as skill-sets and instincts that connect and enhance their shared aesthetic.


SANCCOB needs your help

SANCCOB is synonymous with African penguins, the only penguin species endemic to the African continent. Since its establishment in 1968, SANCCOB has treated nearly 100000 oiled, ill, injured and abandoned African penguins and other seabirds.

The current seabird centre in Table View, Cape Town, is in desperate need of renovation. SANCCOB needs public support to help raise the necessary funds to build a new and better seabird hospital by the end of 2017.
