flying penguins

Last week, the BBC reported a colony of penguins that had gained the ability to fly (video). The penguins were reported to fly thousands of miles and spend the winter in the tropical rain forest. It turned out, the incredible evolutionary leap was an April fools day joke by the BBC and soon after the video of the special effect team was released.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
