  • SAN DIEGO, CA - MARCH 13: In this handout photo provided by SeaWorld San Diego, Humboldt and Magellanic penguins swim together in their habitat at SeaWorld San Diego on March 13, 2014 in San Diego, California. These amazing avian ambassadors can be seen during a behind-the-scenes tour at SeaWorld (Magellanic penguins can also be seen in their outdoor habitat outside the Penguin Encounter). Both Humboldts and Magellanics are classified as vulnerable populations. As with many penguin species, their status has a potential to be reclassified as endangered due to overfishing, habitat destruction and human interference. SeaWorld San Diego has one of the most successful penguin breeding programs in the world and was the very first zoological organization in the world to breed Magellanic penguins through artificial insemination, with three successful hatchlings in 2013. Humboldts (which have one black stripe) are from Chile and Peru; Magellanics (two black stripes) are native to Chile and Argentina. (Photo by Mike Aguilera/SeaWorld San Diego via Getty Images)
