Sperm Bank Created to Help African Penguin Population

Officials say there are around 50,000 breeding pairs of African penguins currently in existence.

That’s down from around five million just 20 years ago.

That’s why two oceans aquarium in cape town chose two of its African penguins to be the first donors to the sperm bank.
