Why do we study animal behaviour?

Now you know why we study animal behaviour so who’s up for challenge one? Let’s go!
Count how many adult pairs of gentoo penguins you see ‘bow-hiss’ to each other in a 30 second period using our penguin cam. Repeat this two more times and then find the average like this:
Finding an Average
Step 1: Add up total number of times you saw penguins bow-hiss accross the 3 observations
e.g. 17 + 12 + 8 = 37
Step 2: Take your total and divide it by the number of times you observed the penguins (in this case 3 times)
e.g. 37 ÷ 3 = 12.333
We wont judge if you want to use a caculator! Just don’t forget to share your results with us at RZSS Learning via social media or email quoting "Behaviour Hub Level 1"!
