Treating penguins

The penguins at SAMREC's rehabilitation facility at Cape Recife receive treatment on a daily basis.  Here one of the penguins are having sores on his feet looked after by three of the staff members.  You will notice that the guy is holding onto the bird very tightly.  Like any bird penguins may not have teeth, but they can still give you a very nasty bite if you allow him to.


  1. Pedicures for penguins !! Nice work from dedicated people!

  2. Sure wish I had someone to give me a pedicure about now. Good to see these spectacular creatures getting help.

  3. We have an awesome team at SAMREC..

    All our volunteers are so dedicated..
