See penguins for yourself in Antarctica!

Adelie Penguins (via Wikicommons)

 

Penguins are famous for their ability to survive in some of the planet's most hostile and far-flung environments. From an early age, we're bombarded with inspiring images of penguins hopping, sliding and frolicking around frostbitten landscapes that even humans are unable to tame. It's made them one of the world's most beloved and instantly recognisable family of birds. Yet precisely because of this, very few of us have been lucky enough to see a penguin in the wild.

BirdLife International has teamed up with Rockjumper Birding Tours and One Ocean Expeditions to offer you the chance of a lifetime to see these fantastic creatures for yourself - and significantly contribute to our Protect A Penguin campaign at the same time.

The 17-day cruise, which takes place in February 2018, departs from Punta Arenas, Chile, and takes in the sights of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia en route to Antarctica, the last untamed continent. Along the way, there will be a chance to observe numerous species of penguin - such as Gentoo, Megellanic and Southern Rockhopper - in addition to spectacular mammals such as the Leopard Seal.

For each passenger who books via BirdLife, Rockjumper will make a generous donation to our Penguin Campaign, and help secure a future for these delightful birds, so that they can be enjoyed by future generations.
