Penguin boxes 2 gimp

iKapa Honorary Rangers spearhead Endangered African Penguin Nest Boxes Project.

(Extracts from Press releases by John Elford)

Penguin 3 gimp
iKapa Honorary Rangers launched a campaign in 2008 to purchase specially designed penguin nest boxes for the Boulders Penguin Colony. This campaign was a response to the dramatic decline of the global endangered African Penguin population in recent years and the reduction of penguins at Boulders from 3700 birds in 2005 to 2600 birds in 2007. The nest boxes are specially designed to protect eggs from predators and juveniles from heat exhaustion which is having an impact on the populations of these charismatic sea birds. iKapa Honorary Rangers involved with the project were presented with the prestigious Kudu Award by SANParks (South African National Parks) Chairperson Dr David Mbandla for the African Penguin Project. Working with the Dyer Island Trust, the US based Species Survival Plan and the Boulders Penguin Colony 200 nesting boxes were purchased by sponsors including the public and 30 schools in the Cape.
 
Members of the public can sponsor a nesting box for a donation of R200 per box-the supplier is contributing the other R200 for a total cost of R400 per box. A map of the numbered nest boxes with sponsor’s names is on display at Boulders Penguin Colony.
