Show / Meet A Penguin

Meet a penguin

See an African penguin waddle through the the Aquarium. Meet the trainers and learn how they care for the day-to-day needs of these endangered birds.


Take a waddle on the wild side

Our trainers ensure every animal under our care gets daily enrichment opportunities. For the African penguins, that sometimes means a change of scenery. In this feature program, our trainers will bring one of the penguins out for a free-roaming training session.


Meet a penguin takes place in our Teck Engagement Gallery in the the presentation area below the globe.
