    About This Project

    BirdLife South Africa

    African Penguin numbers are decreasing due to a lack of prey (sardine & anchovy) on the west coast of South Africa. The population is also vulnerable because it is split by a 600 km gap between the east and west breeding colonies. We hope to do what has never been done before: create a new African Penguin colony! This will bridge the gap and reduce vulnerability to catastrophic events. But one thing we need to know before we do this is what potential predators there are around the chosen sites.

    Blast off!
