Penguin Cam is a 24-7 live video feed that gives eye-to-eye access to hundreds of penguins.
Discovery Channel and SeaWorld invite online audiences to get ready for FROZEN PLANET with the introduction of ‘Penguin Cam‘
Please be warned – watching the live action in the penguin enclosure at SeaWorld San Diego can be quite addicting, especially when the penguins get up close and personal with the camera out of curiosity.
Following the success of Discovery Channel’s Shark Cam and in anticipation of the U.S. premiere of FROZEN PLANET, Discovery Channel and SeaWorld have launched Penguin Cam – from SeaWorld San Diego’s Penguin Encounter attraction featuring more than 300 penguins representing five species, all of which are featured in the Discovery series.
Penguin Cam immerses online visitors into the 25-degree penguin habitat and brings them eye level with king, emperor, Adélie, gentoo and macaroni penguins.
Fans of Penguin Cam can follow the tuxedoed stars and witness daily feedings, SeaWorld educator presentations and much more.
In addition, Discovery Channel will host a weekly chat with a SeaWorld expert every Monday at 12pm ET beginning on March 19, with questions coming from the live online audience.
Penguin Cam visitors can also have fun learning about each of the species featured and spotting the new Adélie chicks that just joined the Encounter.
The FROZEN PLANET digital experience continues beyond Penguin Cam at Discovery.com.
The series’ fansite features dozens of behind-the-scenes videos, interviews and amazing moments from the epic seven-part series, which will premiere on Discovery Channel on March 18 at 8pm ET/PT.
The network will also launch a new online game next week, Criminal Penguins, inspired by the pillaging behavior caught on camera in FROZEN PLANET.
The fast-paced interactive will challenge casual gamers to assume the role of an Adélie penguin and build the perfect nest by finding and stealing rocks – all while other criminal penguins try to derail the mission.
A Discovery Channel/BBC co-production four years in the making, FROZEN PLANET will provide the ultimate portrait of our earth’s polar regions, where the scale and beauty of the scenery and sheer power of the natural elements are unlike anywhere else on the planet.
The series will reveal an astonishing world filled with more creatures, variety, color and spectacle than ever imagined.
Teachers and Homeschoolers can use the Penguin Cam to enrich science learning. Parents can enjoy the live streaming video of hundreds of penguins with their children. It’s a great opportunity to have fun learning about penguins.
Aside from learning… penguins are just plain relaxing. There is something about watching those little guys that makes me happy.
