The Cape of Good Hope SPCA has launched a Seal Squad and is currently looking for volunteers to join its seal-spotting beach crew and help be the eyes and ears for seals around the Western Cape’s coastline.
The Cape of Good Hope SPCA requires volunteers to assist them with the monitoring of seals that are resting on our beaches.
The aim is to keep the seals safe and to keep the public and dogs away.
You will not be able to directly handle a stranded seal, but you can play a crucial role in keeping it safe until one of our qualified Wildlife Inspectors can arrive at the scene to assess the seal and determine the best course of action.
- Volunteers must be 18 years or older.
- Volunteers will pay a one-time fee of R350, which includes a t-shirt and a beach kit (with required gear).
Compulsory orientation training:
Attendance at the required orientation training is compulsory. After receiving your application, you will receive information about the training’s dates.
