There are 17 species of penguin, the Humboldt penguin can be seen at Dublin Zoo. In the wild, they are found in South America, off the coast of Chile and Peru.

The Humboldt penguin is named after the current they swim. The Humboldt currant starts in the Antarctic and travels to the coast of South America.

Dublin Zoo is part of the European Zoo Breeding Programme for the Humboldt penguin.
