World Penguin Day

Posted by Kyle Design on April 25, 2007

World Penguin Day is celebrated each year on April 25th. Peguin Night LightIt is around this time that penguins begin their annual northward migration by swimming or walking (waddling) to their destination. Some penguins have been tagged with electronic satellite transmitters which found that they usually travel between 600 and 1200 miles from their breeding site!

My daughter Kayden’s 2nd grade charter school class animal mascot is the penguin, Perguin Christmas Ornamentso of course I gave her teacher a couple of my handy Penguin Magnet Clips to clip up the world map on the white board while pointing out Antarctica to the students. Kayden and all of her classmates created wonderful Powerpoint presentations on a variety of penguin species – from the Emperor penguins, the largest penguin with adults standing about 3 feet 7 inches tall, to the Little Blue (or Fairy) penguins, which are the smallest penguin species at around 16″ tall.

As can be expected, we saw and loved the movie March of the Penguins last year. It is amazing how these birds that don’t fly have adapted to life in Antarctica!
