Penguin Awareness Day

Saturday January 20th (All Day)

Penguin Awareness Day is the perfect time to learn about and appreciate one of the few natives of Antarctica.

On this day, spend a little time learning about penguins by reading a book about penguins or by watching a documentary of these cute and popular, grounded birds.

You are also encouraged to wear black and white—penguin colors. However, wearing a tuxedo in their honor is optional. It is also popular today to tell a penguin joke or two.

Penguins are found in Antarctica, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Peru, the Falkland Islands, and the Galapagos Islands. Elsewhere, they are only found in zoos.
