On Saturday 11 November, more than 500 spectators gathered on Plett’s Lookout Beach for the second penguin release of the year. Ten penguins, rehabilitated at Tenikwa Wildlife were released in co-operation with Nature’s Valley Trust and Birdlife South Africa.
The little coastal birds charmed the crowd as they made their way into the water, in a tight group, before gliding out to see to start the next leg of their ocean journey. Bon voyage! And a massive thank you to everyone involved in this project.

We asked Springbok Rugby Captain Warren Whiteley what his 'Plett feeling' was after spending a week in our town, and here's what he had to say.
The 2017 Springbok Rugby squad was in Plettenberg Bay this week on a training camp ahead of their test clashes with the French in June.
They managed to fit in a number of training and recovery sessions, gym workouts, perform medical check-ups and took part in team building activities.
