Bird flu detected among Cape Town’s penguins 16.09.2022

Bird flu has been detected at the Boulders Penguin Colony in Simon’s Town.

Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) management said on Friday that four cases had been detected among the endangered seabirds, with another seven cases suspected.

The strain is the same as the one detected in seabirds in the Western Cape earlier this year.

The area will remain open to visitors for the time being, but visitors are advised to stay on designated boardwalks and report any suspected bird flu cases to TMNP management.
