New African Penguin Chicks at the Georgia Aquarium

Guess what hatched over the Georgia Aquarium last month?

Egg Pip (B15004)

Vet exam B15001

For the fourth year in a row a successful hatching of African penguin chicks. Four chicks made their debut to their penguin parents throughout the month of January and are being monitored daily by Aquarium and veterinary care staff. Breeding programs like Georgia Aquarium’s are highly important since African penguins are included on these endangered lists due to very rapid population decline from overfishing and environmental changes.

How to See the New Penguin Chicks:

The penguin chicks can be viewed behind the scenes in the Georgia-Pacific Penguin Nursery beginning in late February. For more information check out Georgia Aquarium’s Behind the Scenes Tour.

Our family visited the Georgia Aquarium a few weeks ago for the opening of the new Aquanauts Exhibit. The Georgia Aquarium, located in Downtown Atlanta near Centennial Park is always re-inventing itself, so if you haven’t been in a while, you would be surprised at the changes! Their other offerings included in the ticket price include the exciting live and acrobatic Dolphin Show and 4D movie. My family with kids aged 4-10 enjoyed every bit of it.
