Penguin release at Cape Recife

I can't say enough how good a job the guys at SAMREC does when it comes to penguin conservation and caring for penguins found on our beaches.  Once the birds have gone through the rehabilitation process at the centre in the Cape Recife Nature Reserve they get released back into Algoa Bay to make their way back to their home on the islands in the bay.  The penguins don't get released on their own and when there are a couple ready to go they normally invite the public to come and watch the release.  This is all about creating awareness of these threatened sea birds.  For this week's Friday video I came across this one of a penguin release filmed by a member of the public some time in 2013.
