Punta Arenas, Chile
Even though we have done it before, we opted for a second visit deep into Patagonia to visit the Magellan Penguins in their natural habitat.
They come here for about six months a year to breed and train the babies before heading to Eastern South America for the balance of the year.
They are a monogamous group for life, and additionally come back to the same burrow.
In fact if for some reason a penguin finds himself single, then he doesn’t even get to come home.
They are distinguishable from other penguins in that they have two neck stripes instead of one.
