Do Penguins Like the Cold?
Do Penguins Like the Cold? takes readers on a tour of the Southern Hemisphere to meet eighteen species of penguin and to witness the conservation work underway to protect these incredible birds and their native habitats.
By observing penguins firsthand, readers will discover whether penguins truly like the cold, how their diving skills make up for the fact that penguins can’t fly, and how to tell what a penguin had for dinner based on the color of its poo!
Along with zoological facts, field guide Huw Lewis Jones has some helpful tips on how to track penguins’ movements from space, on what prehistoric penguins can tell us about their descendants, and advice on what we can to do help penguins faced with a warming world.
Packed with information about penguins living in Argentina, Australia, Chile, the Galápagos Islands, Namibia, New Zealand, Peru, and South Africa, Do Penguins Like the Cold? also gives readers a hands-on look of what it’s like to work in the wild.
