Established in 1968, SANCCOB is a non-profit organisation whose primary objective is to reverse the decline of seabird populationsthrough the rescue, rehabilitationand release of ill, injured, abandoned and oiled seabirds – especially endangered seabirds like the African penguin. The organisation works closely with colony managers to identify birds in need of care in the wild and bring them to one of its two centres in South Africa: Cape Town (Western Cape) and Cape St. Francis (Eastern Cape).
In almost 50 years, SANCCOB has treated more than 95 000 seabirds and independent research confirms that SANCCOB’s oil spill response actions alone have increased the African penguin population by 19%.
In a non-spill year, SANCCOB treats up to 2 500 seabirds, of which approximately 1 500 are African penguins. Other seabirds treated by SANCCOB include various cormorants species (including the endangered Bank cormorant and Cape cormorant); various species of terns; pelagic birds such as albatrosses and petrels; and oystercatchers, gulls, pelicans and other coastal and seabirds that are found in the region. On average, SANCCOB admits 24 different seabird species for rehabilitation per year.
It is an internationally recognized leader in oiled wildlife response, rehabilitation and chick-rearing; contributes to research which benefits seabirds; trains people to care for the birds and educates the public to develop behavioural patterns which benefit marine life and the environment it depends on.

SURFING COACH IN CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA.
Projects Abroad is a great organization that organises community project all over the world to help underprivileged groups of people achieve better in their lives. In Cape Town, Projects Abroad have launched a "Volunteer Surfing Coach" project run out of Muizenberg, Cape Town. They organize groups of under-priveledged children to spend time on the beach learning how to surf. This is exceptional, as even though Cape Town is a huge surfing community, these children don't have access to equipment or the opportunity to learn how to surf. For any more info, please don't hesitate to contact these guys, or even help lend your support.

Wavescape: Surf report
Muizenberg is the home of surf in Cape Town. From surf-schools to afternoon 'board-room' meetings of the executives. This place sees it all. Every surfer in Cape Town has surfed Muizenberg, and anyone who has learnt to surf in Cape Town has probably done it here as well. Its an easy swell and not to rough. But be prepared for some paddling... check out the surf report at WAVESCAPE (www.wavescape.com). These guys keep us well informed... when its pumping, you want to know about it.. call in sick, and grab that board!!
Shark spotters are our angels in the sky. Keeping a watch on the water and issuing the warnings that are designed to keep our swimmers and surfers safe.
Be sure to support them and follow them on facebook. They really are looking after all the citizens and visitors to Cape Town. Both above and below the water.
