First Penguin Chicks To Go On Exhibit In The June Keyes Penguin Habitat On Tuesday, September 10 Photo Credit: Hugh Ryono

   Two Magellanic Penguin chicks made their way into the world, hatching at the Aquarium of the Pacific in late June. The public can see the penguin chicks at the June Keyes Penguin Habitat when the Aquarium opens at 9:00 a.m.that morning.

The two baby birds were being cared for behind the scenes, where they could be seen via the Aquarium’s live penguin chick webcam. The Aquarium of the Pacific also has webcams in the June Keyes Penguin Habitat. People around the world can tune in to catch a glimpse of the chicks exploring the habitat for the first time and meeting up with their parents Roxy and Floyd. Cameras have been placed above and below the water, giving viewers an up-close and candid look at the lives of the Aquarium’s Magellanic Penguins. The webcams have been provided courtesy of, the philanthropic multimedia arm of the Annenberg Foundation.

Native to Argentina and Chile in South America, this penguin species prefers a more temperate climate such as that of Southern California than their Antarctic-dwelling cousins. Magellanic Penguin chicks hatch with their eyes closed and are able to open them about a week later. After about 90 days the chicks fledge, losing their downy newborn feathers, which are replaced with water-tight, sub-adult feathers.

The public can help name one of the penguin chicks during a live auction at the Aquarium of the Pacific’s tenth annual Sea Fare fundraiser on Saturday, October 19, 2013, which benefits the Aquarium’s education, conservation, and animal care programs. Tickets to this event are $125 per person and include gourmet food and beverages, an open bar, and more. For information and to purchase tickets, the public can visit or call (562) 437-FISH.

PUBLIC:         Starting September 10, 2013 at 9:00 a.m., the public can see the new Magellanic Penguin chicks in the June Keyes Penguin Habitat and during daily meet-and-greets at the Molina Animal Care Center. The first two people who check in each day on Four Square when they are at the Aquarium can go behind the scenes at the penguin exhibit. The Aquarium is open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily. Aquarium admission is $25.95 for adults 12+, $22.95 for seniors 62+, $14.95 per child (ages 3-11), and free to Aquarium members and children under age three. The penguin chicks can also be seen via the Aquarium’s live web cams. For more information, visit or call (562) 590-3100.
