This story will make you want to waddle into the weekend. The Georgia
Aquarium hosted its first ever Waddle Walk featuring the African
penguins. Guests of all ages got "happy feet" as the penguins waddled
their way through the aquarium's atrium and struck a pose for pictures.
Officials say the walk celebrated Endangered Species Day and featured a
presentation about the African penguin as an endangered species.
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.
