The Plight of African Penguins

The population of African penguins on Robben Island, South Africa has declined by more than 90 percent in the last 100 years. Earthwatch’s research over the past 15 years is helping scientists and policy makers to understand how African penguins are breeding, where they’re hunting for food, whether chicks are surviving, and if methods to help protect these birds—from setting up nest boxes to hand rearing malnourished chicks to potentially relocating entire breeding colonies—were, are, or will be, effective.

Take a look at Earthwatch’s Alix Morris’s virtual scrapbook in which she details her experiences on the expedition South African Penguins.
