Most of us imagine penguins to be polar creatures, much more at home in a world of ice and snow than on the sandy beaches and sheep paddocks of the Falklands. Yet this is one of the world’s great penguin capitals: as many as a million penguins nest in the Falklands every summer, representing five of the world’s seventeen species – King, Gentoo, Rockhopper, Magellanic and Macaroni. What’s more, for the Gentoo, the Falklands are home to the largest population on Earth
