Shackleton The Penguin visits Waiuku, New Zealand

Shackleton The Penguin has just paid a visit to a street named Ernest Shackleton Place in the small rural town of Waiuku, New Zealand!

Photo of Terry Short who is a descendant of Ernest Shackleton and as a hands on property developer it was he who named the Street after Ernest Shackleton. A typical Kiwi bloke wearing shorts even in winter!

This Shackleton The Penguin will now be presented to the Whangarei, New Zealand Shackleton Sea Scouts hopefully at the Hamilton Sea Scout Regatta in September 2022.

Huge thanks to Ron Bird (Deep Sea Scout based in Waiuku, New Zealand) for arranging the photo and presentation.
