Inspired by two news stories in the Daily Record and Metro, most photos and videos from the linked pages.

Quote from Metro:

“Today is World Penguin Day, which aims to raise awareness for the importance of conserving penguins’ natural habitats.

The day coincides with the Adelié penguins’ return to Antarctica after months spent at sea – the area is home to 10,000 species, including Adelié and emperor penguins, but is under threat from human interference.”
