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.

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