The Galapagos Penguin
By: Jessie Lian
Being endangered, the Galapagos penguin, otherwise known as the Spheniscus mendiculus hangs on survival by a thread, having a population less than 2000. They are the smallest of the South American Penguins, and are approximately 50 centimeters in height and weigh about 4.8 pounds. These penguins are usually located on Fernadia Island and and on the west coast of Isabella Island.
