The morning began with the 8 a.m. as normal. Once again I was assigned to pens three, one and C which meant I was going to be handling and taking care of over 60 African penguin chicks and nine kelp gulls once again. However, Nicky, the rehab manager at SANCCOB, decided to introduce me to the giant petrel after I told her I thought he was scary. (When I say giant I'm not exaggerating. This bird reminds me of a pterodactyl!) We arranged a time in the early afternoon when I would help her handle him. As the day went by one of the rehabers, Romy, kept joking with me about my "date" with the petrel.
