Episode InformationBoulders is a popular beach resort on South Africa’s Cape where penguins and people are competing for suburban habitat. Nesting space is short on the beach, so enterprising penguins move into town – trespassing in hotels, private pools, hothouses, the golf course. Life’s challenges can be tough – the hot African sun, egg thieving gulls and mongooses, crowded living quarters, and devastating winter storms. But their toughest challenge is human. Their invasion has brought laughter, fun – and conflict.
