Galapagos penguin

From Isabela.

If you’ve been reading my posts, you know the Galápagos are located along the equator.  Yet they have their own endemic species of penguin!!

Galápagos penguins are the only species of penguin that may live in the Northern hemisphere.  The Humboldt and Cromwell currents keep the waters around the islands cool and full of fish to allow the penguins to live in such a “tropical” location.
