Penguins are flightless birds that live much of the time in water.  They are primarily found in the Southern Hemisphere.  Seven species were seen during a 2014 trip to Argentina, Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica. 


Adelie penguins are found only in Antarctica and are genetically related to Gentoo and Chinstrap penguins.  Gentoo penguins are primarily found in the Falkland Islands and South Georgia  and number 300,000 nesting pairs worldwide.  Chinstrap penguins are found in the sub-Antarctic islands as are Mararoni, King, and Rockhopper Penguins.  Magellanic penguins are found in Argentina, Chile and Falkland Islands.  King penguins are the second largest penguin next to the emperor penguin.  King Penguins can dive for 5 minutes to depths up to 1000 feet.
