Penguins

All About Penguins!

Penguins are some of the most beloved ambassadors at our parks.  There’s something about the way they waddle that makes people smile, and they are always the best dressed for every occasion! 


Like humans, penguins are stronger together. Human couples often share parenting duties, and penguins do the same. Males and females take turns incubating eggs and foraging at sea for food.  And penguins often huddle in groups for warmth and protection. 


Did you know that a group of penguins on land is called a colony, but a group of penguins floating at sea is called a raft?


Follow along this week as we learn more about penguins. Our Saving a Species: Penguins episode will bring these flightless birds to your homes.   We will also cover topics such as Species Diversity, Food Webs, Reproductive Strategies, Sustainable Fisheries, Global Geography, and Extreme Adaptations, for grades K-8.
