Our penguin colony is a lot like humans in New Zealand: we are separated by about half a degree of separation - the rest of the world? 6 degrees!
So it is with Ciara: she has been chosen specifically as Stewie Junior's (new) mate in Uncle Chang's box. Her father is mated to Poppy and she grew up across a small bay from where she found Stewie Junior. Her step-mother (so her father's previous mate) is Dylan's new mate - and these two sponsors are also related.....so she, her mate, her house and her two fertile eggs are so blessed - what could go wrong when so many fingers and toes are crossed - and of course we will be watching over this precious 2-year old as well!
