Adelie Penguin


Once or twice during the summer season, a small number of Adelie Penguins come over to visit the Halley Station. The Adelie penguins, named after Adelie Land, which in turn was named after the wife of French polar explorer Jules Durmont D'Urville, are the funniest and the best of all penguins in Antarctica: inquisitive, interactive and very lively.
