WHAT’S BLACK AND white and lives in Ski Dubai?

That’s right - a beloved troupe of snow penguins, who are set to emulate their species’ migration at the venue in Mall of the Emirates tomorrow.

The event, being held to mark World Penguin Day, will see a special route created for the flightless birds to journey across - just as Adelie penguins set off on their annual northward migration in the Antarctic.

Visitors can get close to the animals, including McFatty (pictured), and take pictures while watching them on their way.

The march will start from the Snow Park at 6pm. For further information, call 04 409 4000 or visit
