  1. personally i find it hard to see the little penguins 🐧 freeze like that. i would just have been soo carefree to help eachone of them. but then it's against mother natures purpose.

  2. So what are the requirements to help baby penguins off in the cold? I'm concerned if they were rescued or if they were left alone with nature taking its course on them.
