And penguins!
An experimental three-year fishery closure around Robben Island in South Africa has increased the survival of endangered African penguin chicks by 18 percent. The fishing of anchovies and sardines off Cape Town is believed to have contributed to a 69 percent decline of the penguin population from 2001 to 2013. Although the study published in the Royal Society Journal Biology Letters shows that the implementation of a marine "no-take zone" had a positive impact on the penguin population, current fishing pressures may still impede the population from recovering further.
