Not every penguin lives in the snow and ice! African Penguins (Spheniscus demersus) make their home along the coast of South Africa - a climate similar to central California. Agile and graceful under water, they ‘fly’ through the water fast enough to chase down schools of fish. Threats facing African penguins include guano collecting, oil spills, competition with commercial fishing, egg collecting and loss of habitat. African penguins are listed as ‘vulnerable’ by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
