Founded in 2006 by Wilfred Chivell, the Dyer Island Conservation Trust delivers unique conservation and research programmes in a fragile marine and critically important marine eco-system. We strive to protect the largest surviving colonies of the endangered African Penguin whose numbers are at an all-time low; the globally important breeding and calving grounds of the Southern Right Whale; and the world’s densest populations of the vulnerable Great White Shark.
The Dyer Island Conservation Trust Mission:
Birkenhead House is situated on the beautiful coastline of Hermanus. It is our responsibility to ensure that our stretch of coastline is kept pristine and we do everything we can to protect the precious marine life.
