Chattanooga (WTVC) — This year four
penguins were born at the Tennessee Aquarium. Staff at the Aquarium just
learned all four penguins are females and will need your help coming up
with names. Before the penguin naming contest begins the first week of
December, watch the video to learn a little more about their four
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.
