You don’t always have to go to the zoo or aquarium to see penguins from around the world, there’s Penguin Watch right on your computer!
Penguin Watch is a website that helps everyone understand the lives of penguins. Penguin populations in Antarctica are under threat from human impacts such as fishing and climate change. Penguin Watch uses almost 100 cameras, and teams of scientists from across Antarctica and the Southern Ocean to help gain a real grasp of how many penguins are out there. Users can help keep track of penguins, chicks and eggs and other species throughout the year. Users can click on each penguin for interaction with the photos, there are explanations about the penguins, and Penguin Watch is great for schools to engage with and learn. Learn more about penguins, watch their behavior and simply enjoy them with Penguin Watch.
