Of the 17 species of penguins, the African penguin (aka jackass penguin) is the only one found in South Africa. And, of an estimated 1.5 million breeding pairs 100 years ago, there are only 24,000 left today. _ The African penguin began moving rapidly towards extinciton when industrial fishing started around the Cape. In the last four years the population has seriously crashed leading to the change in conservation status to endangered. _ Sources: dw.com, krugerpark.co.za Video: @dw_environment #penguinawareness#penguins#southernhemispbere#jackasspenguin#endangeredspecies#stopextinction#perfection
I know I'm a bit late but as I think it should be penguin awareness day every day: Happy penguin awareness day everyone! Mommy and me donated to a penguin helping organisation yesterday because she said not every penguin gets as much love and fish and plushiemail as we do! So hopefully we can at least help them a little ❤🐧 Have a nice sunday everyone! 😘
Happy National Penguin Awareness Day. We don't know if you're aware, but it turns out that Penguins are the MOST metal bird in the animal kingdom.
