Since the turn of the 20th century, we’ve lost 99% of the African Penguin population. 99%. Let that sink in.
Today, the greatest threat they face is a lack of the fish they rely on. Sardine stocks - their favourite food - have shifted from the west coast, where they have traditionally been more abundant. As a result, we’re seeing their numbers decline even further.
Our African Penguin Relocation Project aims to establish new safe spaces for penguins to breed in areas with lots of fish, and help to ensure the future of Africa’s only penguin.
