Today will quite possibly be one of my favorite memories of all time! Margaret brought me to see a release of 17 African penguins that had been rehabilitated at SANCCOB and it was the perfect way to celebrate the New Year.
This release also took place at Boulders Beach which I now think might be one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. There's no question where the beach got its name. It's surrounded be enormous boulders and on and around these boulders stood African penguins. It was the perfect place to release 17 more!
The rest of the group consisted of two more adults and 14 juveniles. The adults headed into the water right away. The juveniles however stayed together on the beach for a while before heading into the ocean as a group. It was a magnificent sight watching those youngsters head into the water.
