They often spend summers feeding in polar waters and undertake lengthy migrations towards the Equator as winter arrives. Read more about this amazing creature here.

The Adelie Penguins are one the smallest and most commonly found penguin in the Antarctic. They are quite clumsy on land but are amazing swimmers that can dive down to 180m. Although they tend to catch their prey much closer to the surface, they are very playful in the water. They are usually found in colonies of hundreds. The Penguins are listed near threatened despite their increasing numbers, but the population could decline massively with climate change and other penguins coming in better adapted for the climate change.
On October 24th, 2015 Tree Musketeers organized their 3rd Annual Make a Difference Day event. Make a Difference Day is the largest national day of community service. Here in El Segundo, Tree Musketeers likes to dedicate this time to tree care for our local trees in preparation for planting season! Tall and Small volunteers came out to care for our Trees to the Sea along Imperial Highway by participating in a clean-up competition. We collected over 280 bags of trash and invasive plants!
