The Go Penguins Are A Go

The Penguin Post has learned that at long last more than 200 decorated glass fiber penguins have officially  gone on display in Liverpool this week as part of the city’s Year of the Environment.  The Go Penguins artworks were decorated by celebrities, schools and community groups. Colonies of the colorful, flightless birds can be seen across Liverpool, Wirral and St Helens until 10 January.  They are being used to highlight the dangers of global warming and polar ice melting. One of the more heralded penguin sculptures is from Birkenhead-born television and radio presenter Paul O’Grady who designed a penguin called “Owl Ma Penguin” which was inspired by his childhood memories of older women from his hometown.
