People love penguins for all sorts of reasons. I love penguins because as a birdwatcher, photographer and conservationist penguins allow me to get close to them, without them being scared.
That People love penguins is even more true when children come into contact with wild penguins.
Most are mesmerized by the birds, the way they walk upright, the way the penguins socially interact with each other and their comical plumage of black and white, like smart little people rushing about.
In fact penguins are inquisitive birds and are usually just as interested in us as we are of them.
