Fun Facts About Our Mascot:
Their aerodynamic bodies and strong flippers make them excellent swimmers, reaching speeds of 7.6 mph.
They can dive deeper than any other bird – as deep as 565 m 1850 ft – and they can stay under water for more than 20 minutes.
A social animal, they will walk up to 75 miles each year to reach their colonial nesting areas.
Once an egg is laid, the male will care for the egg until hatched while the mother returns to the sea to hunt for food. This can last up to 2 months!
As the young penguins grow, adults leave them in groups of chicks called crèches while they leave to fish.
Considered a “near threatened” species due to disease, habitat destruction, and disturbance of breeding colonies by humans
They can live 15-20 years in the wild
