Projects in Northern Chile

Karte von ChileThe habitat of the Humboldt Penguin lies on islands near the coast of Peru and Chile between the fourth and fortieth degrees southern latitude. This is where they breed and hunt.

A current area of concentration for Sphenisco therefore lies in the battle over the planned building of coal-fired power plants in the Coquimbo Region, which would threaten large areas of the Humboldt Penguin's habitat.

Further information, current developments, and other activities of Sphenisco in northern Chile can be found on the navigation board on
