Stony Point Nature Reserve is home to the third-largest breeding colony of African Penguins in the world and has successfully increased the breeding pairs. Stony Point Nature Reserve is situated in the coastal town of Betty’s Bay in the Overberg South Africa and lies on an old whaling station site. During 2021 it was home to approximately 1,600 breeding pairs of African penguins.

This is the bay where you will see the penguins swim and walk on the beach. Also present in the colony are three species of cormorant; the Crowned cormorant, Cape cormorant and Bank cormorant, all of which breed on the outer rocks. There are also Hartlaub’s Gulls and Kelp Gulls which forage in the colony, while the Rock Hyrax, more commonly known as the Dassie, can be seen on the surrounding rocks.

Threats to seabirds and penguins breeding at this colony include the dramatic decrease in the pelagic fish stocks and competition with commercial fisheries, predation by land-based predators such as mongoose, caracal and leopard.
