Emperor Penguin – Antarctica 2020

We made a visit to the Chilean Antarctic base Bernardo O’Higgins to hear some of the history and current activities on the base. In addition, there was a Gentoo colony which we intended to visit. As we watched the Gentoos, we heard the unmistakable call of an Emperor Penguin. This caused great excitement and we rushed to find it and there it was – a lone Emperor Penguin amid the noisy Gentoos. What a treat. This was the first time an Emperor Penguin had been spotted by the staff of the base. A great finale to our one month trip to Antarctica.
