The project is a registered non-profit organisation whose primary objective is to reverse the decline of seabird populations through the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of ill, injured, abandoned and oiled seabirds – especially endangered species like the African penguin.

With limited staff, the project relies heavily on the support of volunteers to achieve the mission of the organisation. Volunteers become an extension of the staff and are an integral part of the daily running of the project. Not only do volunteers assist with the hands-on work with the seabirds, but they also provide assistance in all functions of the project such as marketing, procurement, and fundraising. In short, the project needs volunteers to join the team!
