Day 20 Today Is Penguin Awareness Day

Today is Penguin awareness day and as such here is our African Penguin, Brilpikkewyn in Afrikaans. They make a loud donkey-like braying sound and are presently on the endangered list due to a variety of reasons, pollution, disturbances at their breeding grounds and competing with fisheries for their food.

We saw them at Simonstown at the Boulders. They are strange yet endearing characters we must look after them.
