Red Data – work in progress

Red Data – work in progress.

The African Penguin Spheniscus demersus is endangered and a red data species. Population decilne has resulted from reduced fish stocks from commercial fishing, oil slicks. Reducing gull predation on its chicks can have a positive impact on the population. A fishing restriction zone around Is lsands in Algoa Bay has increased penguin numbers.
