What percentage of penguins live in warm weather?
roughly 76% of the world's population of penguins live in what is considered to be warm weather.
All penguins do not need to live in the cold. There are several species of penguins that live in warm weather environments including Magellanics, South African/Black footed, Gallapagos, and Humboldts just to name a few. The ones that do live in the cold happened to adapt to that environmental niche whereas these others have developed life cycles and breeding styles that would not be possible in cold weather environments.
yeah, some live on islands actually. Most penguins live in moderate or even warm temps - like islands off Africa, including Madagascar, Galapagos, and others. Penguins even live in a forrest like in New Zealand, but still go to the water for food. Out of 17 species of penguins, only about 5 live in the cold weather.
