Penguins in the Arctic?
The penguins will also take shifts chilling at nearby
Camp Arctica, as an educational outreach. Their goal
there will be to teach people that penguins do not live
in the Arctic. This project was somewhat controversial,
with opponents arguing that were the penguins not there
to protest the misunderstanding, there would be no
misunderstanding.. Still, the popular penguin
position was to reach out and teach the public about
penguin origins. So, drop by and support them while
they're on duty. And if you hear someone say: "But,
aren't penguins from Antarctica?"
You'll know to reply, indignantly and slightly impatiently,
"They're here to spread the word that Pengins are not
found in the Arctic!"
| This group of Penguins makes the annual
trip to the desert to enjoy Burning Man. This year
they'll stand guard duty around the Nose and the Roller
