African penguins are very sociable animals. Adults form bonds for life and groom each other regularly, strengthening this bond.
There are only a total of 18,000 African penguin breeding pairs left in the wild. This is a dramatic fall in numbers since 1900 when an estimated 2 million birds could be found. This 97.5% drop in population means these penguins are now classified as Endangered.
