Rockhopper Penguin (Eudyptes Chrysocome Moseleyi), Antarctic Peninsula

The Rockhopper Penguin is aptly named on account of it's unique jumping movements between rocks. There is a major colony in the Falkland islands and large populations on a number of offshore islands in southern Chile and Argentina. Due to rapid population declines, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species has classed the Rockhopper as "vulnerable".
