Wat je gaat doen

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…

For the second time, I enjoyed the penguin experience with Jon. This time, I got to share the fun with my brother and his family in Australia ánd with my parents, who live in another part of the Netherlands. Jon made it possible to celebrate my nephews birthday during lockdown. This made him ánd us very happy! The realisation that we celebrated Simons’ 8th birthday on three continents made it extra special! Thanks so much, Jon! We loved our time with you and the penguins!

Booked as part of a corporate event for both our employees and their children, Jon was very a very personal host. Even though we had small attendance, it was an engaging experience that would have been the same with 20 people or 2 people, highly recommended for any company with a kid involved event coming up soon.

Our family really enjoyed this experience. We learned heaps about penguins, enjoyed the art time, and had a great time talking with the host, Jon. Now we all want to visit the penguins in South Africa someday. I highly recommend this experience for families.

Wow! I booked this experience for my 6 year old son and myself. Jon did an amazing job providing a fun, interactive, and educational experience for us. He has a warm and outgoing energy that made it easy to connect with him and time truly flew by. We did the penguin craft and learned a lot about the African penguins through videos, photos and his experiences. There is a strong emphasis on conservation and care for these animals which was great and we can't wait to visit South Africa in the future. Definitely worth booking!
