Seal Pup Rescue and Rehabilitation


In conjunction with Tenikwa wildlife awareness and rehabilitation center - Fur seals pups are completely land based for the first 10-12 weeks, as they need to built strength and learn how to swim first through trial and error. These little guys often get knocked off the rocks by other seals or stormy swell before they are ready, the lucky ones from time to time make it to beach without drowning but exhausted and mostly dehydrated, Tenikwa gives them medical check-up and re-hydrates them before we reunite them with the colony.They have 50% survival rate if reunited with the colony within 3 days.

Education and community upliftment


We work in affiliation with the Nature Valley Trust on their environmental education programs. We have also received a letter of appreciation from the international foundation of environmental education for our efforts and involvement in environmental education. As part of our community upliftment efforts, we offer an annual internship every year for a youngster from the local community and train them up to a guide or skipper or both. We also support various reach for dreams initiatives and swimming programs.
