On the 16th we went to the Melbourne aquarium and saw lots of neat fish, scorpions, and scarab beetles! In the end, we saw PENGUINS swimming and waddling around! It was feeding time and you could go underwater and watch the swimming ones catch their squid. You could also see the ones on land being fed by hand so the workers would stick a fish in the penguin’s mouth.
Then when we went to Philips Island to see the penguin parade where all the little penguins wait to be fed by their parents. You watch the penguins come out of the water and up and over and up the rocks and hills. Then we went up to the boardwalk and I made a new penguin friend that followed me everywhere. I named it Fluffy.
Fluffy and I would walk together and I would bend down and talk to him and support him when he needed to catch his breath. His friends would help him too; they would come up from behind and tap his back to tell him to move along. There was another penguin that was kind of overweight and flopping around. I think he was Fluffy’s friend.
After Fluffy joined a group of a few other penguins we left because if we stayed any longer I would love him even more than I already do. I miss Fluffy and if you do too, you can help save him and his friends and family by visiting penguinfoundation.org.au and donate to help them.
