Trading the snow for the sand sun-drenched beaches south of Cape Town, African penguins are stirring things up amid the hustle and bustle of everyday life for the humans of this idyllic landscape.

Follow the birds as they take on a hefty mission to find a mate, make babies, and keep from going extinct. Penguin Town uncovers the bonds between the African penguins, including the troublemakers known as the “Car Park Gang” and sweet newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. C.
