penguins 2January 20 is National Penguin Awareness Day! It’s in the time of the year that these adorable and unique sea creatures are given special appreciation and care. The origin as to how the celebration was created is unknown, but it has been linked to the observance of World Penguins Day where penguins migrate annually to the north.

Penguins are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living in the Southern Hemisphere, mainly in Antarctica and considered natives. They are also in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Peru, the Falkland Islands and the Galapagos.

It’s really fun to celebrate Penguin Awareness Day with family and friends by wearing black and white, putting a display of penguin photos on your desktop, sending your loved ones with penguin e-cards or even throwing a penguin-theme party.

This campaign aides with the awareness and safety of an animal that is greatly affected by climatic changes, to live in a cleaner environment.
