Galapagos Penguin

Description Average body size- 49 cmAverage body weight- 2.5 kgBody color- black with white rings around the it's neck that meet at it's eye. White belly.Beak color- black on top and white on the bottom with black at the tip of the beak.They are the smallest kind of pengiun that live on the equater (the only penguins).

Why they are endangered: Change in climate lowered their food supply which has lead to low reproduction rates and increased starvation. Polution threatens the safety of the Galapagos penguins, and so does the introduction of small animals into their habitat (cats, dogs, rats, etc). These animals will attack the penguins and ruin their nests.
