A baby penguin has been born on the Isle of Man for the first time in eight years.
Curraghs Wildlife Park in Ballaugh welcomed the newborn Humboldt penguin - the chick’s gender is not yet known but will be in the coming months.
Isle of Man charity The Friends of the Curraghs Wildlife Park approached housing developer Dandara for help in 2016 to fund nest boxes.
Humboldt penguins are found around the coast of Chile and Peru but the species are considered to be vulnerable to extinction.
The current that brings up fish from the Antarctica which they feed on has been affected by the warming of the seas. Over-fishing and disturbances on the beaches where they nest are also a threat. The development of new nest boxes was designed to encourage breeding at the park for the first time since 2010.
