SAPREC (Seabird and Penguin Rehabilitation Centre) was established and recognised by Cape Nature in March 2005. Carol Walton who founded the centre has been working with penguins and sea birds for over twenty years, with the help of Dr Frans de Graaff from Hartenbos Animal Hospital.
The African Penguin as well as the Cape Gannet are classified as Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
It is our vision to the move the rehabilitation centre to a tourist area in Mossel bay and build a wonderful facility to interact with our amazing seabirds.
We are a registered Non Profit Organization.
We are registered for Tax Exemption so this is a wonderful opportunity to assist us! Please email or phone us for the Exemption Reference Number.
Should you wish to support Saprec with funding, sponsorship, products or prizes no matter how big or small, we would be very grateful.
