The South African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCOB) is a registered NPO whose primary objective is to reverse the decline of seabird populations through the rescue, rehabilitation and release of ill, injured, abandoned and oiled seabirds – especially endangered species like the African penguin. Since its inception in 1968, SANCOB has had 97 000 seabirds admitted, treated 54 different bird species, reared 8372 penguin chicks, and has around 1500 African penguins admitted annually.

SANCCOB is an internationally recognised 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.
