“Early escape before we rush back to the office. Choppy surface but temp was slightly warmer than Monday. Thanks Frank for the spot on prediction (again), and for accompanying me back to the boat.  Sweetheart, thanks for getting me to the other side safely, and Charl du Plessis for the amazing pics. Magson Marine, thanks for tuning my Yamaha.” – Howard Warrington

Our hearts break every time we are faced with a victim of human carelessness. Like this cormorant that was admitted into our care, highly stressed and with a fish protruding from his mouth. It was puzzling as to why he had been unable to swallow his catch until the fish was dislodged from his throat under sedation. The fish was completely wrapped in a plastic mesh. The cormorant was checked for further injury and a wound to his neck was sutured before he was given some time to recover and then returned to the wild.

Humankind were the cause of this bird’s distress and suffering – unless committed and brave hearts band together to keep our wildlife safe from harm, we will continue to see heart-breaking situations like this.

Thankfully Howard has put his hand up to be counted!

You can too! Support Howard’s #Swim4Survival and remember, every action we take can either positively or negatively impact our environment. Please choose wisely so that animal suffering can be prevented and so that their habitats and lives can be preserved.

Please report any wildlife in distress to the CoGH SPCA Wildlife Department on (021)700-4158/9 or after-hours on 083 326 1604.

It’s not going to be easy but you can help make it worth it!

It costs us on average of R450 to rescue and rehabilitate just one wild animal and our wildlife department operates at a cost of almost at a million annually.

Help Howard raise his final goal of R120,000 for wildlife and the animals of the Cape of Good Hope SPCA
