African Penguin

By: Sebastian Madrazo and Colby Doherty

The African Penguin lives in the southern waters in Africa near Gabon and Mozambique. It eats anchovies and sardines. Sharks, feral cats, and kelp gulls are what eats this species. It is endangered because of its food shortages, commercial fishing and displacement from breeding sites. The number of individuals alive in 2010 was 55,000. They are threatened by climate change, competition with fishermen, and a history of unsustainable egg harvests.
