Sydney Martin made a poster on Galápagos Penguins. It looks like she put a lot of effort into it and it looks very nice. From her poster, I learned that the population is less than 2,000 and that fishing can actually be a cause for their population decreasing. It is also interesting that they're the only species found north of the equator and in the Galápagos.
