On 25 April we celebrated World Penguin Day. Here in Algoa Bay we are very fortunate to have the biggest breeding colony of African Penguins on St Croix Island. But we’re not just fortunate to have them here, we are thus also aware of the desperate plight of the African Penguin. Penguin numbers have plummeted since the 1980’s with only around 18000 breeding pares left out in the wild. As a belated celebration of World Penguin Day, I’m posting this rather awesome video by Volkswagen and the Dyer Island Conservation Trust. It may not have been shot here in Algoa Bay, but it could just as well have been and have a lot of relevance to our penguins as well.
