    There are 18 species, or types, of penguins. They are found mainly in the southern half of the world. Many types are found in the cold regions of Antarctica or nearby islands. Penguins also live along the cool coasts of Africa, New Zealand, Australia, and South America. The Galápagos penguin lives in a warm region off the coast of Ecuador. A study has found that New Zealand's monster penguins that lived 62 million years ago had doppelgangers in Japan, the USA and Canada. During the study, researchers compared fossilised remains of a group of much younger Northern Hemisphere birds, the plotopterids, with that of the giant penguin species Waimanu, Muriwaimanu and Sequiwaimanu from.

Penguins are perhaps the most beloved birds. On land, their behavior appears so humorous and expressive that we can be excused for attributing to them moods and foibles similar to our own. Few realize how complex and mysterious their private lives truly are, as most of their existence takes place far from our prying eyes, hidden beneath the ocean waves.

Experts from New Zealand and the United States have reconstructed the fossil skeleton of one of the giant seabirds for the first time, revealing long wings, a slender build and a spear-like bill. An important and unique part of that conservation programme is the Colony's Research Scientist who is now one of New Zealand’s leading little penguin experts.

PLEASE NOTE: We have a strict arrangement for bookings. To ensure we can manage the viewing safely, if you wish to come to the colony you must pre-book at least 24 hours in advance.4/ TripAdvisor reviews.
