This week it’s the new marine bird centre

Hermanus Bird Club

The Club morning outing, on Thursday 4 June, will be a visit to the newly established African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary in Gansbaai.

The sanctuary, which was opened in February, is described as a custom designed, world-class, marine bird rehabilitation centre that will provide temporary rehabilitative care to sick, displaced, injured, oiled and abandoned marine birds, with a special focus on the endangered African Penguin. The project was driven by the Dyer Island Conservation Trust in conjunction with tourism partners Marine Dynamics and Dyer Island Cruises.

We meet at the Fernkloof Nature Reserve Hall on Thursday at 08:00 to consolidate transport. Weather permitting, we will stop at the bird hide in Stanford on the way back. Bring your own refreshments.

The visit will be led by Margie Ogston, who can be contacted on 083 240 9191.
