  • Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) August 23, 2020 - Tumblehome Inc today announced their 10/21

    Tumbleocity session to ZOOM to Antarctica to Visit the Adelie Penguins. These FREE, fun, fact filled 45 minutes are created for kids 8+ and will answer your questions about these endearing creatures. Ever wonder how penguins survive in Antarctica? How are they adapting to climate change? What is it like to live and work in the penguin field station at Cape Royds? Author and penguin researcher Jean Pennycook will discuss her 15 years of observations and trace the story of one penguin she calls Joey. You will hear about Joey’s and Jean’s adventures as they develop their skills in surviving this harsh environment. She will share her photos, videos and stories from the research station in Antarctica as well as from her book Waiting For Joey.

    Jean has studied the behavior of the penguins as they come ashore, build nests, lay eggs and raise their chicks for 15 years. Covid has restricted travel to Antarctica this season so Jean is working to educate others about what her science team is learning about the penguins, and how changes in their environment are effecting the lives of these remarkable birds.

    Audience: for ages 8+
    Date: 0ctober 21, 2020
