Happy Earth Day! 

 Scenes of the Gentoo penguin colony at Port Lockroy, the southernmost post office in the world located in Antarctica.  

 This year the Penguin Post Office received a record number of applicants for 4 jobs requiring a 5 month stint without running water or electricity.  

 There is so much beauty all around us and Antarctica has definitely given me a greater appreciation for our planet.

A gentoo penguin mother and chick at the Penguin Post Office in Port Lockroy. Unfortunately, this chick will most likely not survive since it got such a late start and winter is fast approaching.
