8 Geography: Exam Revision Week – Part 5: Aptenodytes Forsteri Edition?

Hi Hummers

Remember, I will be running lunchtime tutorials for any questions you may have about the Geography Exam and other topics I think will be helpful.

Today and tomorrow in your home room! – Also, make sure and read the post below (Dancing Optional)

Emperor penguins (Aptenodytes forsteri) are truly amazing birds. They not only survive the Antarctic winter, but they are capable of breeding during the worst weather conditions on earth. Our research aims to learn more about the penguins themselves (how they live, where they go, what they do, and what they need to survive), and how human activities may impact on their lives and survival chances. The emperor is the largest of the 17 penguin species growing up to 1.15 metres tall and weighing up to 40 kg. They can live to more than 40 years. Their closest relatives are king penguins.

It is also the only animal to inhabit the open ice of Antarctica during the winter.
