Around 700 emperor penguin chicks have been filmed diving into cold Antarctic waters for the first time by jumping off a 15m high ice cliff.

According to experts, their astonishing leap is considered a key “rite of passage” into adulthood. It is also their first swim. This is the first time this event has been caught on camera, and the footage will be part of a documentary series called “Penguin Secrets”.

The video was taken by “National Geographic” researcher Berti Gregori, who followed the penguins for two months.

“Usually they jump from the sea ice which is one or two meters high, but I noticed that this group was moving towards another place, so I took the drone up there to see what was going on and realized that they were piling up on the edge of a huge 15 meter ice cliff” , he described the scene.

A drone captured a scene of penguins standing on the edge of a cliff looking down into the ocean. Finally, one fearless penguin took control and bravely jumped into the water.

“One by one they started jumping off this ice cliff to swim for the first time in the Southern Ocean,” said Berti.
