The Penguin Sanctuary in Gansbaai is a conservation project aimed at protecting the African penguin population from extinction. Located in the Western Cape of South Africa, the sanctuary provides a safe haven for penguins that have been affected by oil spills, overfishing, and habitat loss. The sanctuary is also a breeding ground for penguins, where they can lay their eggs and raise their chicks in a protected environment. Visitors to the sanctuary can observe the penguins in their natural habitat, and learn about the importance of conservation efforts to preserve these unique and charismatic birds. The sanctuary also offers educational programs for school groups and tourists to raise awareness about penguin conservation.
