Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925671) - Northern Rockhopper Penguin - Awarded $12,495 on October 12, 2009
12-10-2009 - Northern Rockhopper Penguin

Nightingale's main Rockhopper Penguin rookery was under threat from habitat loss. Seals were encroaching and subsidence created deep pits in which penguins fell and died. This project has provided a simple fence and the pits in which penguins fell were filled in and made safe. The profile of these endangered penguins has been raised. More penguins are surviving as a direct result of this project.
