The Sanctuary´s colony of Humboldt penguins were all bred at their sister SEA LIFE attractions. These endearing and sometimes comical creatures come from the coasts of Chile and Peru where there are estimated to be fewer than 10,000 pairs still surviving.
Colonies like these may one day provide a vital lifeline for this endangered species. Their disappearance would certainly be a tragic loss to the animal kingdom.
The Humboldt Penguins were residents at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary between 2010 and 2024.
