Boulder, South Africa: On the south east coast, near Simon Town, there is small locality called Boulder, which has a coloney of African Penguins (Spenhiscus demersus) amidst round smooth rocks, for which tourists come from all over. This is also a bio-diversity protection park and they are trying to bring back the local native plant species, that had been replaced by plants brought from Australia and other places. Nature has developed different plant and animal species in different parts of the world over millions of years, which are inter-connected through ecosystems. That bio-diversity is under threat due to plants and animals brought from other places and due to man-made new species (Genetically modified organisms - GMOs).

बोल्डर, दक्षिण अफ्रीकाः देश के दक्षिण पूर्वी सागर तट पर साइमन टाउन के पास छोटी सी जगह है बोल्डर जहाँ बड़ी गोल चट्टानों के बीच में अफ्रीकी पैंग्विनों की कोलोनी है, जिसे देखने पर्यटक दूर दूर से आते हैं. यहाँ पर स्थानीय जीव-वनस्पति भिन्नता संरक्षण का काम भी होता है जिसके द्वारा यहाँ के स्थानीय पेड़ पौधों को फ़िर से लगाया जा रहा है, जिनकी जगह आस्ट्रेलिया तथा अन्य देशों से लाये पेड़ पौधों ने ले ली थी. प्रकृति ने करोड़ों वर्षों में दुनिया की अलग अलग जगहों पर भिन्न पशु, पक्षियों, जीवों का विकास किया. एक जगह पर विकसित होने वाले सभी जीव, एक दूसरे से प्रकृति-चक्र के माध्यम से जुड़े होते हैं. आज उस प्राकृतिक जीव-वनस्पति भिन्नता को दूसरी जगहों से लाये जीव, पेड़, पौधों की वजह से और मानव द्वारा विकसित नयी किस्मों के जीव-वनस्पतियों से खतरा हो गया है.

Boulder, Sud Africa: Sulla costa sud oreintale, vicino a Simon Town, c'è una piccola località chiamata Boulder, dove c'è una colonia di pinguini africani (Spenhiscus demersus) in mezzo alle grosse rocce rotonde, per la quale qui arrivano turisti da tutto il mondo. C'è anche un parco per la salvaguardia della biodiversità dove cercano di ripristinare le specie di piante locali che erano state sostitute da piante importate dall'Australia e da altre parti del mondo. La natura ha sviluppato le diverse specie di piante e di animali nel arco di milioni di anni, che sono inter-connessi tra di loro tramite complessi ecosistemi. Questa biodiversità è in pericolo per lo spsotamento delle piante e degli animali dagli esseri umani e per le nuove specie create da uomo nei laboratori (organismi geneticamente modificati - gli OGM).



  1. I have never seen penguins, either in their natural habitat or in zooz. And each time I see a picture or read about them, I wonder when it will be my turn !

    1. I had seen penguins many times in the zoos, like in Europe& USA, but somehow I associated pengins with cold and snow. Seeing them in South Africa was completely different.

      Even London zoo had the penguins, didn't you see them there? :)
