These most funny creatures gather in Punta Tombo from September to April, during their breeding season, and coexist with other sea animals (sea lions and coastal birds) and land animals (guanacos, Patagonian maras, rheas, and foxes), before returning to the northern coasts of South America.

We will walk among these curious birds and observe their habits and rituals very closely. Depending on the time of the year, we will be able to see different stages of their reproductive cycle.
