A “supercolony” of nearly 1.5 million Adélie penguins was recently discovered on the Danger Islands of Antarctica. Collectively referred to as a waddle, a rookery, a raft, or a huddle, penguins are scattered across the Southern Hemisphere. Our friendly feathered friends can be found on the shores of Argentina, South Africa, the Galapagos Islands, small archipelagos and beyond.
In celebration of wildlife around the world, we’ve collected some of the best discoveries of this favorite flightless bird, capturing just a few of its 17 species. It’s no wonder penguins are the stars of so many films.
To see more birds, lions, tigers, and bears, march on over to Trover’s #Wildlife Photo Challenge. Post your own new #Wildlife photos and travel stories for a chance to waddle away with some Trover swag.
