Symbolic Adoptions Gentoo Penguin

Adopt a Gentoo Penguin

Gentoo Penguin

Partial to ice-free areas such as coastal plains, sheltered valleys, and cliffs, gentoos gather in colonies of breeding pairs from a few dozen to many thousands. As part of the mating ritual, the charming male Gentoo with his bright orange beak and peach-colored feet presents a gift of a stone to his mate. The male and female penguins, once paired, collect stones and plants to create a nest together. The two will trade off incubating two eggs for a little more than a month, until the chicks are hatched. Show More

"For our 14th wedding anniversary, the traditional gift is ivory. Since so many animals are killed for their ivory, I thought it would be a great gift to donate to adopt an elephant as my husband's gift." Laura Connecticut
