World Penguin Day coincides with the annual northward migration of penguins. This happens each year on or around April 25th. Penguins do not fly. Rather, they walk, or waddle their way to and from.
World Penguin Day are great opportunities to learn about and appreciate one of the few natives of Antarctica.
Did you know? Penguins are found in Antarctica, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Peru, the Falkland Islands, and the Galapagos Islands. Elsewhere, they are only found in zoos.
It is also a popular day to tell a penguin joke or two about these adorable birds:
- "Why do penguins carry fish in their beak?
Because they don't have any pockets"
-Why don't you see penguins in Great Britain?
Because they are afraid of Wales"
