In the 1960s penguins started showing up on Martillo Island, on the private property of the Harberton Estancia. The majority are Magellanic penguins, which nest in the ground, as well as a small colony of Gentoo penguins, which nest on top of the rocks. There were even two King penguins who had lost their way, and looked rather distraught. It’s the first time they’ve been seen on the island.
