Magellanic Penguin

Magellanic Penguins are a temperate species native to the coasts of Argentina and Chile in South America. These penguins nest in the open or under bushes and some burrow into the soil by lying on their bellies and digging with their feet.

They can be distinguished from other temperate species by the two black stripes on their chests. Other temperate species have just one stripe.

Currently, Magellanic Penguins are classified as “threatened” due to oil spills, fish population decline, and natural predators.

Our Penguins: It's the season of love for our penguins. They're beginning to pair up and build nests for the annual penguin breeding season.

Our animals are part of the Aquarium’s living collection and may be transferred to another zoo, aquarium, or other facility. The life expectancy of each animal varies by species and may or may not be replaced with the same species. These decisions are based on the need to enhance a particular exhibit or gallery, for educational purposes, to contribute knowledge of captive animal husbandry, or to provide research opportunities.
