At the end of June my parents and I went holidaying in Port Elizabeth.  On the third day of our trip, we visited SAMREC: South African Marine Rehabilitation and Education Centre.

The centre takes in a wide range of injured seabirds and attempts to nurse them back to health before releasing them back into the wild.  Here are a couple of their current inhabitants: a cormorant, and a cape gannet.

The penguins had their own enclosure, including a brick-red wall which made a decent background.

When feeding time came around, all the penguins lined up to get their fish.

This little guy was having a claustrophobic moment during feeding time; I took this shot through the thick, scratched glass that looks into the penguin pool.


I’d love to hear your thoughts on my images!
