ANZAC Day commemorated around the world
Australians and New Zealanders commemorated ANZAC Day, honouring members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought in the 1915 campaign at Gallipoli, Turkey, during the First World War. In that campaign, 28,000 Australians and 7,500 New Zealanders were killed or wounded in battle. In the decades since the end of the First World War, ANZAC Day commemorates all who served and died in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. (Reuters;AFP/Getty Images)
Giant fossil penguin found in New Zealand
Fossilized remains of one of the largest penguins ever, an “elegant” giant standing 1.3 metres tall, have been found in New Zealand, scientists said Tuesday.
The penguin lived 27-24 million years ago, when New Zealand was mostly underwater and consisted of isolated, rocky outcrops that offered protection from predators and plentiful food supplies, researchers said. (Photos: Chris Gaskin, Jo Galer/Geology Museum/ University of Otago/AFP Photo)
