SANCCOB’s new facility is the “largest facility of its kind in southern Africa.”
SANCCOB is a 50 year old organisation that has been operating from prefabricated facilities in Tableview, Cape Town, for the past 35 years. After receiving seed funding from the National Lotteries Commission, we embarked on a major fundraising drive to cover the shortfall and commenced construction in February 2017.
Our building work is complete and we now have a brand new state-of-the-art seabird hospital, the largest facility of its kind in Southern Africa.
Specialised areas include two new ICUs, a three-part wash bay area for oiled birds, two surgery rooms, X-ray room, an aviary, and pens and pools. The new centre will allow SANCCOB to increase its capacity to admit and rehabilitate more seabirds, improve our standard of care and educate more people about the plight of the endangered African penguin species and other seabirds. We will also reopen to the public for educational tours and have a new shop facility at the centre.
