Did you miss this morning’s live stream from our June Keyes Penguin Habitat? We have an announcement to make!
As accredited members of AZA, we participate in several cooperative breeding programs called SSP’s (Species Survival Programs). Zoos and aquariums are often asked by the SSP coordinators to swap animals in order to maximize the genetic diversity for breeding purposes. We are swapping Newsom, one of our Magellanic Penguins, for another male. While we are sad to see Newsom go, we can’t wait to introduce our newest member! He will be placed into quarantine for a bit before joining the rest of the penguin waddle on exhibit. Stay tuned! #aquariumofthepacific
