The grace of the seagull's flight is contrasted with the African penguin's clumsy (and cute) waddling on the rocks. African penguins are highly endangered but can be readily seen near Cape Town, South Africa. It was estimated that their population has dropped 95% since pre-industrial times. They're very cute...so go see them in Cape Town!
Location: Boulder's Beach, near Cape Town, South Africa.
