Tourists have found the rarest white penguin in the Galápagos Islands. A case like this was recorded for the first time in the history of the island. The penguin with white feathers stood quiet when he was being photographed. The Daily Mail writes about the rare occasion.
The penguin species has not been officially confirmed, but experts believe that it is a Galápagos penguin, and white color is caused by leukemic pigmentation, which means that its feathers have no color. However, the confirmed information will be known after the investigation.
Members of the International Organization for Conservation of Nature also responded to the discovery, noting that the decline in human activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic has a positive impact on animals and birds. They say the white penguin is an endangered bird species.
