SANCCOB in Table View recently opened a new seabird hospital. The largest in Southern Africa.
Chairperson Marietta Hopley said: “We have done a major renovation of the facility that was here. We have upgraded the old building and built new pools and hospital facilities. It’s an absolutely phenomenal milestone for us. We are proud of this moment and we are thankful to everybody who has contributed to this.
The new hospital will offer group tours and boasts two ICUs, an X-ray room, three-part wash bay area, two surgery rooms, an aviary, a pen, a penguin pool and a water filtration tank area.
