 Post subject: Media Release: Penguins sent home to Bird Island.
Unread postPosted: Fri Jun 24, 2011 2:55 pm 
Good day,

The African penguin juvenile birds ferried off the Addo Elephant National Park’s Bird Island in May this year have been released back onto the island following successful rehabilitation efforts.

Sixty penguins were released onto Bird Island yesterday while another 50 penguin juveniles were transported back to Bird Island by boat last week after 94 of the juvenile birds were transported off the island in May. The rescue operation aimed to ensure the survival of affected juvenile penguins following periods of cold, wet weather during which their condition deteriorated.

For more details on the story see the link: http://www.sanparks.org/about/news/default.php?id=1680

Regards,
Thobeka
