Back into the wild (13 pics)

Two groups of African penguins were released into the ocean. They were contaminated in an oil spill near the coast of Namibia on April 8. After they were treated, the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds released them into the wild. The first group of 84 penguins was released on May 21, and the second one of 38 birds – five days later.
But I had the impression that they weren’t so willing to go there by themselves ))
