Like humans, penguins live in towns and villages called rookeries because it’s easier to protect each other from predators and from the cold weather in groups. And what’s really nice is most have a short commute to work finding food!
Penguins, like humans, love to gather with friends and family to have fun and play. Hanging around with their family gives them particular joy.
Penguins talk and chatter a lot to each other, just like humans! Communication is at the heart of their relationships with each other, just as it is with us.
As they grow older, penguins learn to spread their wings, and even though they will never fly, they grow up for the most part to be responsible and productive adults. Almost all become parents at some point in their life. Sounds like a familiar human story to us.
Sometimes penguins take trips together with their extended family. Like us, penguins know that friends and family are an integral part of their support network.
Penguins are certainly a happy lot! They rarely get discouraged and almost never give up on their goals. We humans are like that as well.
Like us, penguins kiss their babies a lot! Their love and affection for their young is always in evidence
