Alright, looks like I will have to show some "evidence" ; P that there are real penguins on the Penguin Island.
During my last three visits to the Penguin Island, the penguin was not what I saw a lot. It was the silver gull! So naturally, I took a lot of photos of them.
And of course other birds, too.
The "wild" penguins - according to the people running the island - live in those wooden houses that were placed among the bushes on the island. But they just disappeared into their shelters too quickly. And I don't remember seeing a lot of them. So, taking their photos wasn't easy.
The best place to see the little penguins (Eudyptula minor) on the island is the Discovery Center. In other words, not really wild penguins. Again, because these little creatures are so active and keep moving, I have barely got any good, in-focus photos of them. Incredible. (Alright, maybe it's my skills...)
The inside of the Discovery Center looks like this:
The center runs a couple of feeding sessions during which they will give a pretty educational explanation about the penguins.
: ) Sorry about the mysterious ear-piercing noise in the background - no, it's not the penguins singing nor was it a kettle boiling.
