Penguin nurses

A couple of the staff at the South African Marine Rehabilitation and Education Centre (SAMREC) busy treating one of the penguins in their care.  This little guy had a bad wound on his wing and they were unsure how he got it.  Doesn't matter anyway.  What matters is that he is in good hands and will hopefully be ready to be released into Algoa Bay again. 


  1. Good job to the two Penguin nurses. Thanks for taking care of that little creature.

  2. Yes, we have an awesome team of dedicated penguin volunteers.... Go team!!!

  3. We are privileged to visit Pringle Bay on the Cape Whale Coast regularly, and we often pop around to Betty's Bay where, at Stony Point (a early 20th century whaling station) one of only three landbased African Penguin colonies exist.
