Imagine this … being able to get up close and personal with native animals in a wildlife sanctuary, being guided through activities at a working farm on Churchill Island, an educational and interactive experience on the island's newest attraction "Antarctic Journey" and finally, witnessing the star attraction ... Little Penguins waddling in from the ocean to return to their burrows.
