Cape Whale Coast

Cape Whale Coast

This area of approximately 200 km of coastline spans from Rooi Els to Quoin Point, South Africa, and includes offshore islands. The region boasts a unique combination of rich biodiversity, spectacular scenery and cultural heritage. Its nutrient-rich waters host the african penguin, great white shark, cape fur seal, whales (humpback, southern right and bryde's) and dolphins (common, bottlenose and humpback) in addition to many endemic bird species. The southern right whale can be spotted here, yet its population has severely dwindled due to whaling. Luckily, Sustainable Seas Trust is working to promote public awareness of the need to protect the area and the sensitive species that inhabit it.
