Pondering Penguins

Pondering Penguins ELT has been collecting real data on nesting and chicks of a colony of Adelie penguins in Antartica. We even got to name an adult penguin (Buddy), and two chicks (Sunny and Shadow).

We also received postcards from Antartica that we designed ourselves and were featured as "picture of the day" on Dec. 3, 2014. The website is www.penguinscience.com. You click on the education tab at the top of the page, then scroll down to Cape Royds nest check.
