Ever since I can remember, the underwater world has captivated me.  The ocean is a vast environment that we can only be visitors to.  Penguins, although being birds, have evolved to fully exploit the bounty of the ocean.  However, human activities like shipping, overharvesting, and pollution have begun to take its toll on wildlife that depend on the ocean for their very survival.  The CAS’s commitment to education will hopefully bring awareness of the situation occurring off of South Africa and in other places where penguins make their homes.  It’s one thing to watch a penguin on a television screen compared to seeing them up close and personal.  It’s a whole different experience when one can work with these birds on a daily basis.  Fascinating doesn’t begin to describe these wonderful birds. – Allan Jan
