The Europa Group supported the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) as part of the firms social responsibility for 2017. This year, the Group will continue to support the foundation’s important environmental and conservation work as part of its social responsibility for 2018.

SANCCOB is a registered, non-profit organisation whose primary objective is to reverse the decline of seabird populations through the rescue, rehabilitation and release of ill, injured, abandoned and oiled seabirds. The foundation focuses on the endangered African penguin.

Last year, as part of supporting the foundation’s “Adopt a Penguin” programme, the Europa team “adopted” and named a new-born endangered African Penguin, “Douglas”.

With the Group’s sponsorship, SANCCOB was able to provide Douglas with food, medicine and care. Because of SANCCOB’s important conservation work with seabirds, and Douglas’s healthy growth, the Group decided to continue supporting the foundation as part of the its social responsibility for 2018.

The Europa Group contribute to various local and international charitable organisations that share our values and goals as part of our social responsibility. These have included the Gibraltar Heritage Trust, the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, and Baby STEPPs. Learn more about our values and social responsibilities on our website found here.
