About this image
You won't see these penguins walking over ice and swimming under frozen waters.
African Penguins – formerly known as jackass penguins because of their distinctive braying – are the only penguins found on the continent. As a result, few places offer as remarkable a viewing point as Boulders Beach in Cape Town, South Africa.
When these penguins first came to Africa in 1983, there was plenty for them to eat and so the colony proliferated. In recent years, however, commercial fishing, marine pollution, and habitat destruction have negatively affected the colony's size. As a result, these days, there are only a paltry 26 000 breeding pairs left in the whole world!
