African Penguin Awareness Day!

It seems like there’s a day dedicated to everything (humiliation, cheese pizza, video games) why not dedicate a day to Penguins?! Our friends at the California Academy of Sciences have alerted us that there is indeed such a thing as African Penguin Awareness Day, and it is this Saturday, October 8! What better way to celebrate it than by checking out our very own African Penguins on Ustream! These guys call the Cal Academy home, and spend their days swimming, eating fish, waddling, and being generally adorable.

So go ahead, check it out, and don’t forget to hug a penguin today 😉
