I'd jump into the water if those animals came onto my small boat!
Still wrong, great photo Sam
No! Think out of the box
Zanzibar, New Zealand, or the country whose currency is the Zar and is home to the Zulu? We'll go alphabetically, in reverse order.
St. Lawrence River or Lake Erie?
Wrong, OK (I just assumed about the above), how about Lake Argentino on the Patagonia tour or someplace close?
No, all wrong, this is fun! Think out of the box more!
The Philadelphia Zoo?
No, but we are planning on a visit there in the next couple of weeks, we are members
Sorry now that I put this Antarctica section. Please forgive me.....and after this maybe we can start a new Where is this photo thread!
I’ll keep this going until tomorrow’and then I’ll give you the answer.
Have another guess people!
Our zoo opened a new penguin house last spring that I want to visit. Been waiting for the right confluence of it being open and the weather being a nice day for a zoo visit. Maybe next month.
Cathy - This is my favorite South Africa Penguin Pic--He had so much ATTITUDE!!!
Zoos are great for kids and others who cannot see the animals in the wild. Personally, I have not been able to go to a zoo since our first trip to Africa. To me it’s like watching a bird in a cage. “Born Free”,
Yes, I'd rather see them in the wild but not everyone has the opportunity so having and supporting local facilities are important. We also have a lovely biopark with plants and a butterfly house. These are all great resources for schools.
NEWS FORM CHILE
Chile's vaccination rate is the third highest in the world, according to some experts, but that hasn't stopped another resurgence in Covid-19. Infection rates are currently higher there than at any point in the pandemic.
Almost all hospital beds in the country are full and a new lockdown is being imposed in the capital Santiago.
More than 8.5 million vaccine doses have been administered in the country of 19 million people, according to Oxford University's Covid tracker. But officials say new variants and a relaxation of restrictions has led to the resurgence in cases.
In total Chile has recorded 925,089 cases and 22,180 deaths from Covid-19.
I saw a post in The Points Guy newsletter today that might interest anyone that has trips booked for December 2021 to Antarctica. I have pasted a paragraph from the entire article here. Cathy, I had you in mind for this. I know you are traveling in December but couldn't remember the actual date.
"If you’ve been dreaming of a trip to Antarctica, this might be the year to make it happen. According to NASA, a total solar eclipse is predicted for Dec. 4, 2021, and Antarctica may be the only place on Earth you’ll be able to get a complete view of the eclipse this time around. The view will be best the closer you are to the so-called path of totality."
