We visited the penguins as a guest of the aquarium

On Wednesday, two new penguin chicks made their world debut to the public at the Aquarium of the Pacific. The newest members of the Magellanic Penguin family joined the other penguins in the June Keyes Penguin Habitat with lots of swimming, splash and penguin fun.

The new penguin chicks adjusted quickly to the habitat within minutes after jumping into the water. Children squealed with delight while watching the two penguins swimming around the habitat before they were taken back behind the scenes for some rest.

Families are invited to log onto their computers 24/7 to see these adorable penguins up-close on the Aquarium’s webcam. There are cameras mounted above and below the water, giving families at home the opportunity to see these magnificent animals live their life any time of the day or night.

Not only did the Aquarium bring these two cute penguins to meet the community this week, but they are also inviting the public to help give them their names. Through the Aquarium’s Adopt an Animal program, families who donate $100 before October 31st, will have the opportunity to suggest names for the penguins. The family with the chosen penguin names will be given a behind-the-scenes feeding and training session with the penguins! Start thinking of your favorite penguin names, and make your donation to the Aquarium before October 31st!
