When many Americans think of penguins, thoughts of the Arctic Circle come to mind. While it’s true penguins live there, you’ll also find them quite at home in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, New Zealand, and the Falkland Islands. Scientists don’t know much about the penguins of South America, so they’re taking steps to rectify that, and Pugs fans can join in on their scientifically significant outdoor adventures.

Let’s take the expeditions offered by Earth Watch as examples. They’re offering adventurous Americans multiple chances in 2015 and 2016 to travel to the Patagonia Region in search of Magellanic penguins. Of course it will be a working, week-long, outdoor adventure. Some of the scientific tracking activities will take place on dry land and others will involve going below the ocean’s surface. Consequently, you’ll want to pack your affordable sunglasses and comfortable, long-lasting clothes. And if you plan on recording your adventures in Patagonia, a pair of Pugs Ear Buds with Inline Microphone and All-in-One Micro USB Charger purchase might be in order.

For those Pugs fans that have never been to Patagonia, it’s located between Chile and Argentina. Plus, it offers Magellanic penguins access to both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The majority of the fascinating seabirds live in Chubut Province, where the Punta Tombo peninsula is located. The monogamous penguins are very adept swimmers and divers. Furthermore, if they are left alone, the seabirds can live for more than three decades. Unfortunately, they’re rarely left unmolested. Many of them die each year as a result of tragic run-ins with commercial and recreational fishing boats. That’s partially why scientists are making concerted efforts to monitor the penguins.

So if you decide to sign up for these types of outdoor adventures, you’d actually be helping preserve the penguin population for the long haul. To learn more about the best clothes and affordable sunglasses to wear when helping save South America’s seabirds, please visit our website at any time.
