Penguins hit the Rio Beaches

NCBuy Weird News

A Brazilian military spokesman says the National Navy and Air Force will transport at least 100 stranded penguins to Antarctica next month. The birds were found on Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro beaches. Every year, penguins arrive from the Antarctic Circle on the Brazilian beaches. They are transported on ice blocks that melt off the shore of Brazil.

The flightless birds are washed up on Rio beaches every winter. Each time this occurs, the birds are captured and returned to local zoos. Next month, a Brazilian plane transporting equipment to an Antarctic naval base will transport the penguins to Brazil’s southernmost region.

From there, the birds will be transported on board a naval ship to their environment. The ship will drop the birds in their Antarctic habitat.
