Four Magellanic Penguin chicks that were born earlier this summer at the Aquarium of the Pacific will make their debut to the public tomorrow, August 27th at 8:15am. The public is invited to spend the day at the Aquarium of the Pacific tomorrow starting at 9am to meet these adorable new penguins at the June Keyes Penguin Habitat.

The four baby birds are behind the scenes learning how to be handfed fish and to swim, and two are now ready to go on exhibit. The Aquarium has live webcams in the June Keyes Penguin Habitat, allowing people around the world to tune in to catch a glimpse of the chicks exploring the habitat for the first time and meeting with their parents.

Cameras are located above and below the water, giving viewers up-close and candid looks at the lives of the Aquarium’s penguins. The webcams have been provided courtesy of explore.org, the philanthropic multimedia arm of the Annenberg Foundation.

The public will also have the chance to help name a chick though the Aquarium’s Adopt an Animal program by adopting at the $100 limited-edition penguin chick level or above before October 31, 2014. The person whose suggested name is chosen by Aquarium staff members will be able to go behind the scenes and participate in a feeding and training session with the penguins.

See this special moment on the webcam starting at 8am or at the Aquarium starting at 9am. The Aquarium of the Pacific is located at 100 Aquarium Way in Long Beach.
