The African Penguin (Spheniscus demersus), also known as the Black-footed Penguin, is found only in southern African waters. It’s also widely known as the “Jackass” Penguin because it makes a donkey-like bray, although several species of South American penguins produce the same sound, according to Wikipedia.

About 4 million penguins existed at the beginning of the last century. The total population fell to 200,000 in the year 2000; ten years later, in 2010, the number was estimated to be only at 55,000. If this decline is not halted, the African Penguin is expected to be extinct within 15 years.

These penguins were photographed at Boulders Beach on the Cape Penisula of South Africa.
