There are between 17 and 20 species of penguins in the world (depending on whether you consider the White-flippered Penguin to be a separate species and whether you split Rockhopper Penguins into three distinct species). I have been fortunate enough to travel to places like Antarctica, South Georgia Island, the Falkland Islands, the Galapagos Islands, and the Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand and Australia - all are places where you are likely to encounter penguins. The images in this gallery are of wild penguins taken in those places.
