Description
Excerpt: By June 27th, over 4,500 penguins had been transported to the mainland for cleaning, and by July 4th the number had leapt to 14,500 birds. Initially, the spill directly affected only Robben Island, but by June 28th, oil was sighted on the surf of Dassen Island also. Thus, the decision was made to evacuate all 50,000 penguins that inhabited Dassen Island. By July 4th, 11,000 unoiled penguins from Dassen Island had been transported around the tip of South Africa to Port Elizabeth, leaving the remaining penguins fenced in on the island to keep them from the sea. Homing instincts will bring the displaced penguins back to Dassen Island, but relief workers hope to have the oil spill cleaned up by the time these penguins return to their native habitat.
