A penguin found on a beach

Penguin oil spill


2015-06-06-1433598291-5783353-IMG_2129.jpgOver the last few days, researchers have-been caring for dozens of put at risk African penguins that are being rescued from Bird and St Croix islands from the South African coast. Unlike past oil spills in this area, the exact source and responsibility for this incident continues to be uncertain. Whenever no enterprise or company is actually accountable, too little insurance tends to make clean-up extremely difficult. This sets an endangered species at extremely serious risk.

Penguins keep reaching SANCCOB's Cape St Francis seabird center in South Africa's Eastern Cape. To date, Rangers from the aquatic portion of the Addo Elephant National Park (SANParks) have rescued 30 oiled African penguins and air-lifted all of them via helicopter to SANCCOB become cleaned.2015-06-06-1433598443-7280862-IMG_2131.jpg for the following few weeks, the washed birds will still be given, hydrated and swum to ensure they regain the normal waterproofing of their features.

Four African penguin chicks, under three weeks old, had been also rescued with their moms and dads. Weighing only over a pound each, these girls will undoubtedly be hand-reared to be able to provide them with ideal possibility of success.

"The continuous chronic air pollution of seabirds is a major concern for SANCCOB. The number of oiled wild birds grabbed for rehabilitation is rarely an exact representation for the actual influence of chronic oil pollution on seabird populations", stated Juanity Raath, Rehabilitation Coordinator at SANCCOB in Cape St Francis. Although we don't yet know the cause of this spill and if it is from a ship or a faulty pipeline, penguins continue to be in need of rescue.
