Scientists have created a robotic penguin that records day to day life of penguins in the Antarctic. It's a safe way to truly observe these creatures without human disturbance. Technology has allowed us to explore so many places and things without having to physically be there! Can you think of some other examples? ROV's and drones are but a few!
After years of attempting, the world's first litter of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) puppies were born to surrogate mother dog. Check out the video of these cute puppies here!
Every year Monarch butterflies partake in a journey to fly south. Unlike other butterflies, Monarchs cannot survive the winters in northern climates and must seek warmer climates.
Researchers have found that the number of monarchs migrating has plummeted in recent years. This could be due to the many threats facing these butterflies including habitat loss, pesticides, and climate change.
