SAMREC Cracks the Nod From Rosie-lee This
morning at 9:30 a.m. three more penguins rehabilitated at the South
African Marine Rehabilitation and Education Centre (SAMREC) were
released into the water off of Cape Receife.

This brings the number of succesful penguin releases to 6 with a
total of 15 penguins having been rehabilitated and released since
SAMREC opened in the second half of last year.

Penguin release at SAMRECPenguins Sunny Jo,
Rosie-lee and Paul spent four weeks at SAMREC before
being released today.

Sunny Jo, rescued off of the Lighthouse, was admitted with a bite
injury and was in the process of moulting.

Paul was found off of Cannon Rocks and was severely dehydrated upon

Rosie-lee is a SELF re-admission. Aparently she enjoyed her stay so
much the
last time that she booked herself in once again for 4 weeks of
fattening up. As SAMREC Animal Manager, Jared Harding says; “She just
appeared one day in the pool, starving and weighing 2.9 kilograms. How
she gained admittance is a mystery!”

Clever little penguin!

The penguins are always released during a westerly wind to facilitate
easier access for them to the open sea.

There are an estimated 12 800 breeding pairs of African Rock Penguin
left in Algoa Bay as the population continues to decline at an alarming

Volunteers from the ages of 15 and up (for hands on work) and from 18
and up (for education outreach programmes) are welcome to contact Jared
