About This Item

Petronella

The African Penguin (Spheniscus demersus), widely known as the “Jackass” Penguin for its donkey-like bray, is a species of penguin confined to southern African waters and is currently listed in the Red Data Book as an endangered species.

An estimated 4 million penguins existed at the beginning of the 1900′s.  The total population fell to 200,000 in the year 2000, and 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 the next 15 years.

For more info on this penguin, visit our blog entry "Saving Private Jackass" on our blog Suikerbossies,

Suikerbossies support the South African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB).
 

Petronella was launched on 07/12/2012 and travelled a mere 699.4km before disappearing from the first cache we had left her in on 06/01/2013.

We have decided to resurrect it and hopefully it will go a bit further this time.
