The Humboldt Penguin | Photography

This penguin nests on rocky coasts and islands – they feed on their surrounding waters. Although this penguin can inhabit slightly hotter climates than the Arctic, they’re highly influenced by colder climates. This is because the cold, nutrient rich movement of the sea, flowing from Antarctica is vital for the plankton and krill levels. These then foster high levels of fish – which of course the penguins feed off of!

These penguin photos were taken at Wingham Wildlife Park near Canterbury, Kent.
