SANCOR Newsletter features SEEC penguin research

23 Aug 2016 - 11:45

The most recent South African Network for Coastal and Oceanic Research (SANCOR) newsletter featured an article written by SEEC researcher Florian Weller on his research modelling African penguin colonies. African penguins have witnessed a precipitous decline in numbers, from 56 000 breeding pairs in 2001 to only 17 000 in 2013. In this newsletter Florian sheds some light on why this has probably happened and what management measures could help to prevent further decline.
