Artist's Description

A Royal Penguin runs through the crowded rookery to get the Penguin Highway to get to the sea to go fishing. As it passes other Royals they attack it to protect their eggs or chicks.
Royal Penguins (Eudyptes schlegeli) in the breeding rookery, sitting on eggs and mutually preening There are about 20,000 breeding pairs This is the only place in the world where Royal Penguins breed. Macquarie Island, Southern Ocean, Australia. Any serious natural disaster could see the end of this species of bird.
Ocean, about half-way between New Zealand and Antarctica, at 54°30S, 158°57E. Politically, it is part of Tasmania, Australia since 1900 and became a Tasmanian State Reserve in 1978.
The island is home to the entire Royal Penguin population on earth during their annual nesting season. Ecologically, it is part of the Antipodes Subantarctic Islands tundra ecoregion, and is World Heritage Listed.
(Canon EOS, zoom lens.)
Since 1948 the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) has maintained a permanent base, the Macquarie Island Station, on the isthmus at the northern end of the island at the foot of Wireless Hill. The population of the base, the island’s only human inhabitants, usually varies from 20 to 40 people over the year.
