Parade raises awareness of endangered African penguin

  • 15 October 2013

In support of Penguin Awareness Day that took place on Saturday 12 October, uShaka Sea World hosted a fun carnival parade aimed at educating the public about the endangered African penguin.

Scores of supporters joined the parade to help raise awareness, and everyone was in high spirits as they moved through the streets.

Thanks to all for joining in on the day, and let’s continue to do all we can to help save this endangered species. Remember: when shopping for fish, only choose SASSI-approved species!

Here are a few photos from the day.
