Birdlife South Africa has formed a collaboration with Iziko for this year’s Save our Seabirds Festival (SOS), which runs during National Marine Week. The aim of the festival is to raise awareness of the role of seabirds in marine ecosystems and the threats they are exposed to. The festival includes a varied education programme, as well as three evening public lectures by top seabird experts (Dr Rob Crawford, Dr Peter Ryan and Dr Phil Hockey).

Also on display is an exhibition of photographs resulting from theSave our Seabirds Photographic Competition. Judging by the photographs submitted for the 2009 competition, a display of top class photography that is well worth a visit can be expected.
