Best Places To Watch Penguins In The Wild

A tourism Web site says New Zealand and Australia have two of the best places worldwide to watch penguins in action. VirtualTourist.com said Friday that in Dunedin, New Zealand, tourists may catch glimpses of rare yellow-eyed penguins if the notably shy animals can avoid getting eaten by predators like sea lions. There are only a few thousand yellow-eyed penguins in the world. Those seeking to see little penguins, also known as fairy penguins, should travel to Australia’s Phillip Island where VirtualTourist.com said the animals come ashore during nighttime. Outside of Punta Arenas, Chile, visitors could spot a Magellanic penguin or two as the birds share their parenting duties with one another. The U.S. tourism Web site said the Boulders Penguin Colony in Cape Town, South Africa, houses African penguins for tourists to enjoy, while the best spot to see a popular emperor penguin is Antarctica.
