April 25th World Penguin Day

Penguins are native to Antarctica, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Peru, The Falkland Islands and the Galapagos Islands. The rest of the world must see Penguins in their zoos if they want to see them. Penguins do not fly, rather they walk, or waddle, or swim to get where they want to go. Only the penguins of the Galapagos Islands live north of the equator. They were first reported by man in the 1760 as exploration expanded.

How to celebrate – Be aware that some penguins are considered in the endangered species. Visit the Galapagos Islands. Read about all the different types of penguins.
