Science Film Festival 2018- Anna and the Wild Animals - Internship with the Penguins
Age Guideline: Primary School (9-11)
Activity: Make your own Penguin
Anna is stranded on the coast in southern Namibia, where she helps animal researcher Jessica, who has kept a watchful eye the stocks of penguin colonies for many years: feeding sick animals, counting penguins, weighing young chicks and cleaning up nests. Anna did not expect penguins in the heat of Africa. But in the south of the continent, the sea on the coast is cold and full of shoals of fish. Large colonies nest on the offshore islands. However, the African penguins are threatened, because they are finding less and less food for the offspring due to overfishing. Oil disasters have also drastically reduced the number of animals over the past hundred years. Within 15 years, they could actually disappear from the face of the Earth. People like Jessica want to prevent that.
