Saw penguins on the rocks. You look down onto rocks from the foot path along road. Walking on the beach disturbs them. Nice volunteer trying to protect the penguins and give information. Also saw local family arrive in a loud car, hop down onto the beach and shine lights in penguins face to show their 2 kids. Volunteer told them not to, the parents told him to shut up and they continued. Volunteer couldn't do anything more. Typical. Loud car, uneducated, no respect for nature.
