As you delve into the depths of the icy Southern Ocean, you will be introduced to the delightful birds that call this place their home, like Chinstrap, Macaroni, Adelie, Gentoo, King and Queen penguins. Each morning they leave shore in search of sustenance in the deep waters and bravely return in the evening against all odds. Even though they appear cute and cuddly from afar, they can be quite territorial with each other. It is important to keep a safe distance and not get too close to avoid any conflicts.
Every year these penguin parents must venture out for food and carefully take care of their chicks in their absence. They share responsibility between them for 15 days before taking turns in travelling for food once again. Of course dangers are abound as they waddle across rocky outcrops; both from Fur Seals which have been known to welcome visitors too enthusiastically or Leopard Seals waiting patiently at departure festivities.
This mesmerizing yet perilous journey can only be truly experienced through a documentary about it. You will definitely be on the edge of your seat as you witness how these birds navigate their way around obstacles while maintaining family unity despite all odds. So if you want to take a journey with them and experience first-hand what it takes for nature’s most iconic creatures to survive cold winters and scorching summers alike, then don’t miss this rare opportunity!
