Dan Mount, Y5 teacher and ICT leader, applied to speak with SANCCOB
, a seabird rehabilitation organisation, about the birds which are on the endangered species list.
This is the largest number of chicks SANCCOB has cared for at one time since 2007 when 481 abandoned chicks were treated.
The effort is part of the "Chick Bolstering Project" which is being supported by IFAW, the International Fund for Animal Welfare, in partnership with SANCCOB and other conservation groups.
Activity was just as intense at the SANCCOB center in Table View.
An army of 106 volunteers aided the cleaning and feeding operation at the SANCCOB center, while 30 birds were cleaned there today.
