    April 3, 2018, Jersey City, NJ – With their tuxedo suits and awkward waddles, penguins are full of charm and personality.

    Hudson County residents are invited to come, meet one of these aquatic, flightless birds at a “Penguin Lecture” on Monday, April 9 at 3:30 p.m. in the Hudson County Community College (HCCC) STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Building. The 45-minute presentation will provide an in-depth overview of the penguin habitat and will conclude with a penguin visiting from Jenkinson’s Aquarium in Point Pleasant, NJ.

    Although there are 18 species of penguins, habitat destruction, overfishing, and pollution has some species in endangered or threatened status. A low reproduction rate of one or two eggs per year makes continuation of their species even more challenging. Penguins spend roughly 75 percent of their time in water – feeding on fish, squid, and krill. Their dense bones allow them to dive deep for food, according to the Global Penguin Society. Crucial to the food chain, penguins are also prey to leopard seals and orcas in cold climates; and cougars, mongooses, and crabs in warmer climates.

    The HCCC STEM Building is located at 263 Academy Street in Jersey City – just off Bergen Avenue and just a few blocks from the Journal Square PATH Transportation Center. For more information, including cost please contact the Office of Student Activities at (201) 360 – 4195, or email
