Humboldt penguins are thought to be declining in number, and there is thought to be as little as 10,000 left in the wild.

One of the reasons is due to El Nino increasing water temperatures and reducing food supply. They breed on the Pacific coast of South America and offshore islands of Chile and Peru.

Though they are birds, penguins have flippers instead of wings.

They cannot fly and on land they waddle walking upright—though when snow conditions are right they will slide on their bellies.

In the water they are expert swimmers and divers, and some species can reach speeds of up to 15 miles per hour.

Did you know??  When Humboldt penguins pair up they stay partners for life!
