Adopt a Galapagos Penguin

Adopt a Galapagos Penguin

Mates for life

The Galapagos penguin is the second smallest penguin in the world and is endemic to the Galapagos Archipelago, which means that it is found nowhere else in the world. It is also the only penguin species found in the Northern Hemisphere, with some colonies living on the northern tip of Isabela Island. They mate for life.

Threats such as climate change, introduced species, diseases, pollution, and fishery activity all put the Galapagos penguin at immediate risk of population decline. Your adoption of a Galapagos penguin will help us carry out annual monitoring of this species, in partnership with the Galapagos National Park Directorate.
