Having worked in the travel industry for quite some time I had the opportunity to visit some pretty cool places; let’s just say I’m very proud of the way my passport looks these days.
A few of years back I travelled to South America where I got to witness Chile’s largest and most important Magellanic penguin breeding site onoff of Punta Arenas.
A population census of the island during 2008/09 recorded a penguin population of 63,000 breeding pairs, along with an assortment of other seabirds and wildlife. I’m not sure if I saw that many on the day I visited but what I did witness was impressive to say the least. One, two or 63,000 penguins, they’re just as cute in any number combination.
