Although penguins are usually associated with the inhospitable coasts of Antarctica, the 18 different species are in fact spread widely across the southern hemisphere from Australia and New Zealand to the equatorial Galapagos Islands. Led by over 400 photographs of the aquatic birds in their natural habitats, this book explores the natural history, evolution and distribution of penguins and reports on the status and conservation of each of the species today.
