Adelies



More of the Adelies on Detaille Island.

We saw many more Gentoo than Adelie or chinstrap penguins on this trip. Part of that is just luck, but part of it is due to global warming.

Adelies prefer colder weather. On Petermann Island, the penguin colonies used to be almost all Adelie; now in the space of only a few years, they're almost all Gentoo.
