How have penguins adapted?

Visit a penguin colony to find out how these wonderful birds have adapted to the chilly conditions of the Antarctic.

You can try the experiment at home or at school. Just collect different feathers and see how they react to having water sprayed or dropped on them. For down feathers ask an adult if you can have feathers from a pillow or duvet.

This is the first educational video that the E-Base team created as part of the E-Base Live 365 expedition.
