Social Responsibility for 2017
Europa Trust Company Ltd
21 December, 2017
Earlier this year we reported that Europa Trust Company Ltd had chosen an unusual, yet meaningful subject for our social responsibility for 2017.
Europa Trust Company Ltd adopted a penguin as part of the South African Marine Rehabilitation and Education Centre's (SAMREC) "Adopt a Penguin" programme. The Europa Team named a baby African Penguin, "Douglas".
With the sponsorship of Europa, SAMREC (who transferred to the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB), was able to provide food, medicine and care to Douglas.
In previous newsletters this year we have provided updates on Douglas's progress. As 2017 comes to an end, we are delighted to report that the foundation describes Douglas as "happy and growing well".
During the year he has made best friends with another young penguin at the foundation centre named Monya. Douglas enjoys swimming but does not like people much. Once Douglas is fully-grown the foundation will release him into the wild. The African Penguin is currently endangered and lives only in Southern African waters.
Europa contributes 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. Our values and social responsibilities page on our website can be found here.
