There are a few types of penguins on the island but these penguins are fascinating.
Their habitat and predators
Royal Penguins usually swim in the waters surrounding Antarctica and when it’s the right season they come to Macquarie Island. The main predators of Royal Penguins are Leopard Seals. Royal penguins have to look out for the leopard seals so they don’t sneak up on them in the water .
Royal penguins feed off trill, fish and squid. They capture their prey by diving straight into the water and trying to catch them at hiegh speed, which is very difficult.
The current world population of the Royal penguin is believed to be stable at around 850,000 pairs.
Overall the Royal penguins are not a species that should be worried about at this moment.
