WILDLIFE -- Penguin Island: The Falklands

The Falkland Islands, in the south Atlantic, are a haven for penguins. Five unique species of penguin breed in this area. Among them are rockhopper penguins, which can scale steep cliffs; gentoo penguins that run across the grassland; and large, 95-centimeter tall king penguins. During the summer while they raise their young, these penguins brave stormy seas in search of food while fighting for their lives against vicious predators such as skuas and South American sea lions. The full power and glory of these penguins is revealed as they struggle to survive throughout summer.
