Which penguin species are threatened or endangered? Are they all protected by the Endangered Species Act?

    Quite a few species of penguins are threatened or endangered, including the Galapagos penguin, the Humboldt penguin, and the African penguin. Not all of them are protected by the ESA, as some are under protection under CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species). Last year, the US Fish and Wildlife Service proposed seven species of penguin for protection, and has recently added 3 more. The decision to protect them is still pending.
