Welcome back to “History of Club Penguin”. Today we will be talking about February 2008, “Save The Migrator Project”!
The Save The Migrator Project was a project back in early 2008 to help salvage Rockhopper’s ship, the Migrator after it hit an iceberg and had been destroyed. The project was started by Gary. At the beach, there was a large stall that had some tools and also had a banner at the top saying “Save The Migrator Project”.
January 17, 2008, Rockhopper’s ship, the Migrator, hit an iceberg and sank. Due to this happening, Gary set up a project for the Migrator to be salvaged. A few weeks later, Rockhopper appeared in a a small rowboat, saying that there was no one harmed. In February, there had been an underwater party for the project and Gary had set up a site on the iceberg. Players received free mining helmet at the time. Also, a poll was held to ask what the submarine’s name would be. Aqua Grabber was the one with the most votes hence the name of the game at the Iceberg.
On February 19th, when the Aqua Grabber was launched, penguins could use it to retrieve parts of the Migrator. The parts were collected at the Beach. If you completed the first level and recovered all four parts of the ship, you would be awarded the Golden Wheel Pin. On March 20th, the Migrator was starting to rebuild. In late March, it was almost completed. In early April 2008, players could go aboard the Migrator, even though the ship was very dirty and still a bit in ruins.
On April 2nd 2008, the game, Aqua Grabber, was mainly used for collecting gems and treasure. In the middle of April, the Flare Flinger 3000 was set up on the Beach. It was used to make contact with Rockhopper and Yarr. On April 25th, there was a celebration for the return of Rockhopper to Club Penguin!
