Do penguins live in the Tundra?
Tundra is a cold icy climate found in 3 locations:-
- Alpine Tundra is found ate high altitudes anywhere on Earth.
- Arctic Tundra is found round the North pole of Earth.
- Antarctic Tundra is found round the South Pole of Earth.
Penguins are flightless, aquatic birds which are found mainly in the southern hemisphere, this means that Penguins:-
- do not live in the Arctic Tundra.
- are not found in the Alpine Tundra
Thus most species of penguin live in the Antarctic Tundra regions, but there are species of penguin that live and thrive further north than this (eg in South Africa, and on the equator in the Galapagos islands, well outside the area of tundra).
