In 2000 the reality of the Coega Project and the possible threat to the marine ecosystem raised many issues amongst conservationists and the business sector. With the increased shipping traffic in Algoa Bay, the threat of an oil spill or indiscriminate dumping became a mounting concern.

As a result, SAMREC, the South African Marine Rehabilitation and Education Centre Trust was established. The centre offers the visitor a unique and interesting insight into the marine life of Algoa Bay and the challenges it faces. Today the centre rescues all marine life but concentrates primarily on birds, specifically the endangered African Penguin.
