In honor of world penguin day, in order to draw public attention to these fascinating birds, the Zoo and Botanical garden in Cincinnati USA has posted a video that they were able to do thanks to the camera mounted on one of the penguins. Thus, scientists showed what the penguins see the world that surrounds them.
“Happy day for all penguins of the world! In this day to recognize one of the most unique birds on the planet! Есть17 species of penguins and their natural habitat is in the southern hemisphere. Many of these penguins are susceptible to the effects of climate change, and as a result many have to migrate farther to find food, with the result that their numbers are decreasing. Of the 17 types, 11 were classified as endangered or vulnerable,” says zoo under the video.
The zoo and Botanical garden Cincinnati – the second oldest zoo in the USA, it was opened in 1875.
