Raath said any volunteer who is willing to transport stock between Port Elizabeth and St Francis or help with washing penguins can contact the centre at 042 298 0160.

Kevin Kelly of Xtreme Projects, which has been contracted to clean up the oil after the incident, said the sea appeared to be clean.

Kelly, who was also involved in the storage of the stranded Costa Concordia off the coast of the island of Giglio in Italy, said the cleaning process kept his team busy for about eight hours.

“It (the cleaning process) took about eight hours and the last few days we flew over the area to make sure everything is clean and it looks like everything is clean in the sea.”
