XXX?

Update 2015:

NO ENTRYI apologise to my readers, but I have had to remove the name of this place from my blog.

I know that you, clever reader, can still figure out where this place is using your internet search engine, but I am trying to make a point.

In recent years, XXX has been overrun by tourists who have interfered with the penguins to such an extent that they have been responsible for decreasing the penguins’ survival rate. This year, for the first time in many many years, the population is down by 30%, not from disease or any other factor but this: there are too many tourists visiting where they live and breed and they are not heeding signs that ask them to observe the penguins from a distance and leave at dusk. Penguins here are now abandoning their nests, leaving their eggs to die. 

Please be considerate of wildlife whenever you are out and about. Most wild animals are shy and afraid of humans, and yellow-eyed penguins are particularly so. When you get too close to a shy animal it can affect their well being more than you think.
