A proposal for moving forward from the penguin island closure experiment conducted between 2008‐2020 is presented, suggesting that Robben and St. Croix Islands can now be closed for an “extended period” from 2021, that the current experiment be continued around Dassen Island in the short‐term while further understanding of the current ‘counter‐intuitive’ results is obtained and that Bird Island be opened for an “extended period” from 2021.
