Washed Ashore™ Sculpture Exhibit — Rockhopper Penguin


5′ long by 5′ wide by 6′ high


Penguins are flightless birds that live in varied habitats from ice shelves to desert islands. All penguin species, except the Galapagos penguin, are found only in the southern hemisphere. Rockhopper penguin populations have been in steady decline over the past century. Marine pollution, loss of food availability, and commercial fishing have all played a part.
