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.
Thousands voted to help us name the two African penguin chicks that hatched at the Aquarium on January 19. Now, after several weeks behind the scenes learning how to swim (and going through some very awkward molting), they join the rest of our penguin colony on exhibit.
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.
