Thank you to all involved in yet another Penguin Rescue

Eileen van der Schyff

Another four penguins were rescued since the namib times covered the story of Daisy, the penguin, a couple of weeks ago. A very undernourished and oil covered Daisy was rescued at Tiger Reef in Swakopmund on 10 June this year. After she was taken in, cleaned and fed, she gained her strength back and was flown to Lüderitz and released back into the wild near Halifax island, almost a month after her rescue.
The four newly rescued penguins were found two weeks ago between Sandwich Harbour and Walvis Bay and after being cleaned from oil, are currently recuperating at the residence of Mr Boorman and Dr. Dantu, the same people who rescued and nurtured Daisy. Mr. Boorman and Dr. Dantu run a halfway house for penguins in Swakopmund.They would like to thank the following sponsors:
