African penguin Individuals: Brenton the Youngest Penguin

“Brenton” hatched on 25 October 2007 and is celebrating his first birthday today!  To identify him on camera he has an orange wing band on his right wing and a gold wing band on his left wing.   He was named as part of our website contest allowing participants to vote, with the most votes determining the name.  Brenton is also the name of an island off of the coast of South Africa.  This is one of the 24 islands and 3 mainland sites that the African penguin inhabits.  In 1994 there were 99 adult African penguins that lived on Brenton Island.-Pamela Schaller
