Find the Penguin Planet Protectors!
Tick one action off your activity sheet by finding the Penguin Planet Protectors at the National Aquarium. Draco our penguin of the year, is trying her hardest to keep her colony of penguin friends on the nice list this Christmas. Ten penguins have 'escaped' Penguin Cove and are hiding around the Aquarium. Nine are doing nice things for the planet and one is being very naughty. Can you find them?
