O que você fará

Waddle with me into the fascinating world of one our most enigmatic—and endangered— marine bird species. This experience normally takes place on a beautiful beach but due to a national lock-down effort to contain the coronavirus, it is now brought to you live from my living room! You will however get to build your very own craft penguin or we will channel our inner penguin-Picasso and draw a swimming penguin!

Over the course of a one-and-a-bit hour chat /crafts workshop you’ll discover little-known facts and amazing insights into the unique lifestyle of the African penguin via photos, graphics and video that takes us from the dawn of penguins to the modern day.

You’ll learn how to tell a "she" from a "he" and how to determine their age. We’ll even plot their evolution as one of the first true prehistoric "land-swimmers." Virtually, we’ll meet a supporting cast of coastal creatures—extras in the ongoing saga of these undeniably cute but highly threatened birds.

I want to provide a fun and educational experience that the entire family can enjoy.! This can be added to your class schedule as a biology, conservation, and art class, or it can just be something fun to do as a family on the weekend. Most importantly, by participating in this experience, you’ll be directly contributing to the conservation of African penguins via our NGO work.

Penguins and I go way back. A lifetime penguin conservationist, my career was inspired at the age of 9 when I encountered one of the first pairs of African penguins to ever nest on Boulders Beach. I wrote a story about them that got published, thus beginning my journey with penguins (and publishing!) that has Iasted for 37 years and counting. I’m a widely published journalist, author, honorary ranger, shark-loving surfer and host of the popular airbnb offline experience "Penguin Walk with A Conservationist".

The unfinished story of the endangered African penguin is currently being written and I invite you to be a part of it…

I used the experience to bond with grandchildren in Canada, a niece and nephew in Johannesburg and a co-granny in Cape Town. We celebrated a birthday together by learning and having some creative fun. Highly recommended family activity. Jon was informative, empathetic and understanding, handling a group with vast age and ability differences with kindness and humour. Everybody enjoyed it!

Jon did a wonderful job of educating us on the African penguins and making the experience fun for my daughter and I. We loved learning and getting to know about penguins , sure would be nice to make it to South Africa some day to see them.

Jon was very friendly and engaging. My children really enjoyed his energy. He was super patient and receptive to my daughter's continuous interruptions with silly comments and questions, and he expressed delight in the crafts they made with him. Very family friendly and quite a joy!

Jon and Sushi were great! Jon was super informative, we learned a lot of fun facts about penguins, and it was interactive too. The step by step drawing was also super fun, and it’ll be part of a bigger collage for the penguins! Would definitely recommend for families or adults.

I gifted this experience to my niece and her friends for her 10th birthday. She reported back that they all found it very enjoyable. My sister plans to repeat the experience with her coworkers and a childhood friend who is a penguin enthusiast.
