Our energetic and inquisitive African penguins are visitor favorites.
We feed the African penguins in our Splash Zone exhibit multiple times a day, sometimes by hand to make sure they get their daily vitamin, and sometimes by tossing food into the water to stimulate foraging behavior. Watch for underwater acrobatics as the penguins dart and dive to catch their fish.
On January 19, two new penguin chicks hatched at the Aquarium. They are currently behind the scenes learning how to swim, but in a few weeks they will join the rest of the penguin colony on exhibit. In the meantime, check out this video of them growing up!
We've updated our Sea Otter Cam to show you more of your favorite furry friends! With better picture and zoom capabilities, this new cam brings you all the cuteness of our exhibit otters lounging, playing and eating—in crisp detail!
How does a skate settle down for the evening? Do sharks get shuteye once the Aquarium closes? Find out with a sleepover! After fun activities and a bedtime snack, snuggle in next to your favorite exhibit, then wake up to a continental breakfast.
Our standards-based curriculum has been developed to provide educators with easy-to-use, Aquarium-centered science activities for the classroom.
