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.
