An underwater view of a colony of Snares penguins at the sub Antarctic Snares Islands 100 kilometers south of New Zealand.

Snares crested penguins, the world’s rarest, are found only on the sub Antarctic Snares group. An estimated 23,000 breeding pairs live here, with more than 100 colonies on the main island alone. Documented by Greenpeace Aotearoa on the Rainbow Warrior in 2013 to highlight the extraordinary wildlife of the Auckland and Snare Islands that would be put at risk by deep sea oil exploration nearby.
