Description:

Most of the penguins shown - adults, juveniles and blues - came in to SANCCOB heavily oiled. After weeks of rehabilitation, they are now ready to be released back to the ocean. In the 1930's there were about 1m breeding pairs; by 2007 the numbers had plummeted to 4% of the 1930's population; last year it had plunged to a mere 2% . . .
