On Wednesday we were very lucky to have 19 emperor penguins come and investigate our walking group, right near station. With cameras at the ready we were able to capture some great shots to share with the Div media team.

You can check out the video clip on Twitter or Facebook.

A “waddle” of emperor penguins marched on Australia’s Casey research station last night, delighting expeditioners and surprising resident Adelie penguins.

It’s uncommon for the largest of the penguin species to be seen near Casey station.

The posse of 19 penguins was wandering over the sea-ice near Shirley Island, when they encountered Justin Chambers, Will Turner and Brendan Barnes.

Thanks for sharing your empie experience with the world!
