Adelie Penguins are to be found in just a few of the places, that we have anchored at while cruising with the Bark Europa through Antarctica. Peterman island was the place with the largest colony of Adelie penguins in our cruise. They are also the smallest species of penguins by average size, beeing just about 60 cm high.
In order to breed they are searching for rocky grounds and they will start as soon as the ice is gone at these places.
