    Aren't there any agreements on tourists keeping their distance from penguins? These guys seem way too close.

    Yes, they are close - ? the reason why you have a "lump" of penguins at the top?

    It would be nice if some of the tourist companies saw some of these shots in order to politely warn the visitors to behave!!!

    Some tourists just keep rules when there is an authority that forces them to pay a painful lot of money if they brake the rules. If there is

    Why not collect images like this one and show them to the companies that offer trips to that place!?

    (cont'd) I'm sure the scientists behind this project would agree that it's important to stop people from disturbing the penguins like this.

    I think that this is what has happened already. But the key problem is how do you force people to keep the rule, who dont want to keep rules

    To be honest, I'm not sure how much serious the problem is.I read that presence of humans helps to protect penguins from predator attacks

    but it can disturb them while nesting too.I'd say that among other things this project could help to figure out how much it affects penguins

    They do look to be close - they should have a guide with them though. Regulations are very firm. I hope! 😕
