Penguins Under Siege - The untold story of South Africa's Blackfoot Penguins

The Skeleton coast of Southwestern Africa, commonly known as the coast of fury, is the dramatic backdrop to a story of life and death struggles where only the strongest can survive. Lucy and Louie are vulnerable penguin chicks born in a harsh environment where dangers await them at every turn. From rogue sea lions that lurk offshore to snatch their unsuspecting prey to the watchful gulls that wait for their chance to raid an unprotected nest, Lucy and Louie must persevere in the face of great obstacles. Watch their dramatic story unfold in this illuminating look at the daily lives of these African penguins and whether or not they will survive against impossible odds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it Love it Love it! February 20, 2006
Lucy and friends are the core of this story that really portrays the life and struggles of these Blackfoot Penguins, a breed that is a far cry from those featured in March of the Penguins.

"Under Siege" is the perfect film to watch following March Of. It serves to round-you-out. Chcek it out...

4.0 out of 5 stars African penguins!! September 16, 2008
This is a great video if you enjoy animal documentaries. It tells the tale of two penguin chicks of a species that lives in South Africa. It follows the penguins as they grow up and details all the changes they have to go through. It gives you some idea of the different personalities of the penguins and what leads to penguin success. Very enjoyable!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Brutal World of the African Penguin September 23, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I need to warn you that "Penguins Under Siege" has a lot of penguins being killed in it, which explains the title of this documentary. It also has a lot of footage of animals that live in South Africa other than the penguins.

If you are a penguin enthusiast I consider "Penguins Under Siege" mandatory viewing because it is the only documentary I know of that covers the African Penguin. If you have children you might want to consider fast forwarding it past the parts where the penguins are hunted and killed by fur seals.

Also the production quality isn't as good as many other videos. The photography, editing, script and narration is all competent but it has an amateur quality that we normally don't see in most nature videos.

If you want to see the African Penguin, "Penguins Under Siege" is the only option. Just be warned that you will see a lot of dead penguins.
