At the start of the trip, we were able to visit the only colony of breeding king penguins close to the South American mainland.  This colony was only reestablished ten years prior, and the population currently numbers around 100 birds.  They have had trouble raising chicks to adulthood.  During this visit there were at least seventeen chicks present.
