This was Howard’s first swim in sub 10 degree water. Brave man!

“They say that swimming in icy cold water is mind over matter… well, my mind was fine but my matter was frozen. I will be swimming my 100th Robben Island crossing late in May, in aid of SPCA.

It costs Cape of Good Hope SPCA R450 on average to rescue and rehabilitate one animal, and they receive hundreds. Your R450 will help them tremendously.

The Rescue Story of Monty the Mongoose 

Please recycle your plastic waste and cut the plastic bottle cap rings so they don’t pose a threat to wildlife. 

Please take a stand against littering, which often results in fatal injuries to both land and sea animals! 

Report any wildlife in distress by calling 021 700 4158/9 or after-hours on 083 326 1604 and remember, the work of this dedicated team would not be possible without YOU! 

R450 covers the cost of one wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release and supporting Howard’s #Swim4Survival gets you a limited edition #Swim4Survival rally towel and cap. But Hurry! Stocks are limited.

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
