SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) --
The San Francisco Zoo's cutest tradition continued Saturday with their March of the Penguins. A Vine video from the zoo shows two of the newest chicks shuffling through a crowd. One is a male and the other is a female.
The march commemorates the penguins' graduation from what the zoo calls "Fish School." Zookeepers teach penguin chicks how to swim, accept food from staff, and eat whole fish.
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.
