Penguin talk

Waddle your way to the Vancouver Aquarium and learn all about the African penguins.


Learn all about this endangered species

African penguins (Spheniscus demersus) are endangered. North American zoos and aquariums, including the Vancouver Aquarium, are on a mission to save them. All the penguins at the Vancouver Aquarium are bred through the Species Survival Plan program, led by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). You can help, too! Visit the Penguin Point exhibit to find out how.
