As a non-profit organization, the survival of SAMREC depends exclusively on donations of money and goods. Any donation, no matter how large or small, will help the penguins continue to survive. When you donate to us, the money is used in a variety of ways: It may fuel our rescue trips; buy fish and medicine for our patients; help to maintain our facilities or fund our education program. Your donation saves lives and provides healing … and your donation today makes all these good things possible.


We are offering you an opportunity to assist and show that you care.



Your continued support will make a significant difference in saving the African penguin from extinction. Unless significant efforts are made, conservation experts believe the species will be extinct by 2025. You may be able to visit our facility in Cape Recife today, but your grandchildren may only see these charismatic species in photographs.
