LAKEWOOD, Wash. —
An 8-year-old named Alex McKelvey has completed 600 random acts of kindness, according to the Woodland Park Zoo.
Alex is from Lakewood -- and is an animal lover and ‘professed future zookeeper.’
The Woodland Park Zoo gave Alex a special opportunity -- to enjoy an up-close experience with their penguins!
‘Then she got ready for her next act of kindness,’ wrote the zoo over Facebook. ‘Sharing free zoo carousel passes with others!’
Woodland Park Zoo thanked ‘Random Acts’ and co-founder Supernatural
star Misha Collins, for making the penguin connection possible. source
The Penguin Camera is located on Torgersen Island (64°46’S, 64°04’W), off the coast of Anvers Island and less than a mile from Palmer Station. Torgersen Island is home to a colony of Adélie penguins numbering approximately 2,500. This camera is seasonal and operates primarily from October to February, the Adélie breeding season. The camera is solar-powered and may sometimes experience brief outages due to inclement weather. School classrooms and other educational demonstrations will often take control of the camera, moving it to gain better views of the colony.
