The king penguin is the second largest penguin species in the world with an overall population estimated at 1.2 million. In the Falkland Islands there are more than 1,000 breeding adults and over 500 chicks are raised each year. Juveniles are covered in brown fluffy plumage and often appear larger than their parents. It is thought that the Falklands king penguin population expansion may be due to overcrowding further south at South Georgia.
