In the early eighties a pair of penguins turned up at Foxy Beach, Boulders, near Simon’s Town. After a couple of years they began to breed and by the late nineties there were over 2000 birds living there.
Cape Peninsula National Park took over the settlement, as the birds were fast becoming a nuisance in Simon’s Town and barricades have been erected to stop them spilling over into the town. Walkways have been constructed so that tourists have several viewing points from which they can watch the birds, without frightening them. I believe that these are picture of breeding boxes, but though these penguins are not particularly large, these do look a tad on the small side.
