All SANCCOB’s education programmes aim to create an acute awareness of the environment that we live in and what a better way to explore than through hands-on activities and lessons offered by our Wild About Exploration Environmental Education Centre.
Whether you visit our facility or we bring our lessons and programmes to you, we know that you will enjoy learning about the world we live in as much as our knowledgeable educators enjoy teaching about it.
Education activities include curriculum and non-curriculum based lessons, teacher workshops, a mobile science lab and programmes aimed at all ages.
SANCCOB is committed to giving people skills to create a better tomorrow through hands-on learning opportunities through a variety of courses and programmes.
Since 1980, the seabird rehabilitation undertaken at SANCCOB has been the focus of a series of studies by researchers, and the resulting findings have been published in an important series of refereed papers and chapters in books. We aim to contribute to research wherever possible and focus our efforts to increase our knowledge that will benefit seabirds in the wild, as well as to increase our ability to care for seabirds while they undergo rehabilitation.
