About African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary

Operated by the Dyer Island Conservation Trust, the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary (APSS) is an innovative, first of its kind facility based near Dyer Island, home to over 29 species of seabird, including one of the large strongholds of the endangered African penguin in the Western Cape of South Africa.

African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary

The APSS was born out of necessity.

When the Dyer Island Conservation Trust was founded, the community immediately began reporting or bringing injured wildlife to the DICT’s headquarters. While minor injuries could easily be remedied by the DICT’s marine biologists, more severe or prolonged conditions could not be treated in Gansbaai due to the area’s lack of facilities.

As the DICT’s influence spread further throughout the Overberg, more and more injured wildlife were being reported to the team.
