Volunteer Point Penguin Colony

Recommendation by Lemi

Hang out with the largest colony of breeding King penguins in the world at the Volunteer Point Penguin Colony! There are no native land mammals, reptiles, or amphibians on arid Antarctica. However, its small islands (like here on Falkland Island) and coastal regions welcome a variety of migratory birds and penguins. Gentoo and Magellanic penguins also join the party, looking smart in their black tuxedos. You’ll hear them right away when they greet you in a medley of bird sounds. Try to keep a 6-meter distance from the birds to not stress them out. They’re naturally curious, so chances are they’ll sidle up close to you anyway!
