Penguins are really social animal that loves to be around friends and family all the time, sometimes in groups of 200,00! They are always looking for that special someone in their life, and when they find them, they stay together for life. Penguins believe in sexual equality, and the men love to play househusband. They will incubate the eggs whilst their wife is off looking for food.

Did you know?
- Penguin’s used to be able to fly millions of years ago, but now they specialise in swimming and diving. They are fastest swimmers and deepest divers of any bird on the planet.
- A penguins eyesight is far better underwater than it is on land, which is helpful when they go diving for food.
- They spend at least 75% of their life at sea, and can live up to 30 years old.
- They don’t drink water, but they love to eat snow, which is good as there is plenty of that around where they live!
- The Adélie is the smallest of the Antarctic penguins, but their babies grow the fastest.
Our Adélie penguin Says…
I may be as cute as a button and lots of fun to watch as I race around and slide on my belly, but my numbers are dropping at a rapid rate. Over half of my numbers have decreased in the last 25 years due to global warming and illegal fishing, so I need your help to survive. Please sponsor me today to help WWF protect my habitat and reduce the numbers of fisherman that come into my home. We might only be small but we need somewhere to live and play too, and if you could help that would be very welcome.
