This holiday of the World Penguin Day was created at McMurdo Station, which is an American Research center on Ross Island. It was observed and noticed by the researchers that the Adelie penguins specifically start migrating on this day, and hence created this holiday in order to pass a way to the time and give social awareness to these creatures. And hence this holiday of the World Penguin Day is to encourage people to work towards protecting the waters, from human activities such as pollution and the burning of fossil fuels so that these creatures can migrate effectively.
