Today is a great day! Earlier this morning, in coordination with the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB), we helped release 23 rescued and rehabilitated African penguin chicks at Stony Point in Cape Town, South Africa. Over the years, more and more penguin chicks have been stranding, averaging between 600 and 900 birds a year. These penguin chicks need help due to a lot of factors, such as oil spills, food shortage, and degrading habitats. Check out the photos from the release below, and visit our Facebook page to watch the Facebook Live video of the release here.
