BirdLife South Africa has held the SOS Festival for the last 4 years to raise awareness about broad marine conservation issues. “The Save Our Seabirds Festival is a National Marine Week initiative from BirdLife South Africa’s Seabird Division, in partnership with the Department of Environmental Affairs and Iziko Museums, with significant support this year from the Hans Hoheisen Charitable Trust. It will run from 8-14 October 2012,” says Dr Ross Wanless, manager of the Seabird Division. The SOS Festival aims to educate people about the threats to our oceans and marine biodiversity, while inspiring the public to help make a difference.
