About this book

Penguins are aquatic, flightless birds, which live almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere. Antarctica is where a few species can be found, where these fascinating birds are highly adapted for life in the water. The majority of species are found in the temperate zone, and the Galápagos lives close to the equator. Rather than wings, penguins have evolved dark flippers, which match their outer body color and complement their white plumage to the front. This publication explores the world of penguins from
their evolution and habitats to their feeding and breeding patterns and their long term survival and conservation.
