PenguinPenguins are a part of the food chain. If there were no penguins in Antarctica there would be to many Icefish and not as much krill in the area that Icefish live in. Which would mean that Icefish would starve themselves to extinction if they didn’t evolve. Penguins increase tourism in the Southern Hemisphere from the Northern Hemisphere. Especially in: South Africa, Southern Australia, Galapagos Islands and the very south of South America. For example, in Granite Island, Victor Harbour, Australia, fairy penguins that burrow in the island increase tourism in the area. All overseas tourists like to see them.
|This penguin has a rare genetic variation called melanism|
