Mankind and Shores – Area 21 : The penguin beach

manchot qui jouent

Head for the South African shores to meet our Cape penguins – an unforgettable experience!


The curious penguins trot up on the beach before plunging back into the Ocean. Unlike auks, penguins are birds but can’t fly.  They use their wings as fins, diving down to 130 metres.  Discover the amusing Cape penguins – as clumsy on the land as they are agile in the water. Their population is declining, with only 80,000 remaining.
