Artist's Description

Colony of African Penguins (Spheniscus demersus) also known as the black footed penguin on the rocks at Boulder beach, South Africa.
This colony established itself roughly 30 years ago with one breeding pair in the first season and 2 or 3 breeding pairs in the second season. They established themselves amongst people as Boulder Beach is a popular swimming beach and a residential area. The penguins are just as likely to build their nests in a garden, or under a raised house as they are to use the natural habitat. Many of the local people find them noisy and messy and would rather not have them in their gardens. Others appreciate the penguins and consider it a privildge that they have come to live in this area. The colony has thrived so well that the loaction has become an international tourist destination and hence viewing platforms have been built on the part of the beach where tourists are encouraged to go.
