The Galapagos penguin, Spheniscus mendiculus, is the only species of penguin that lives in the Northern Hemisphere. They can be seen on several Galapagos islands. Isabela Island is home to the most penguins. They are often seen on its coasts or near Fernandina Island. Bartolome Island, which has rocky beaches and nearby waters is another place to see these adorable birds. Galapagos Penguins can survive in warm, tropical water in the Galapagos Islands. This makes them different from other cold-water species.
