WHO:              Meet the Aquarium’s penguins rescued from Brazil.

Avery: Avery is a mellow, mild-mannered male penguin. He is the only penguin at the Aquarium on Twitter (@AverythePenguin). He is paired up with Kate.


Kate: Kate has paired up with Avery and will follow him around.  Her trainers call her a “flighty southern belle.” She recently became a first-time mother.


Roxy: Roxy likes to be first, especially when it comes to feeding time. Other than that, her personality is relaxed.  She is paired up with Floyd and is the mother of the first penguin chicks born at the Aquarium in 2013—Heidi and Anderson.


Robbie: When he arrived, he had a foot infection and received medical treatment at the Aquarium’s Molina Animal Care Center. His caretakers say he has been heroically tolerant and brave through the discomfort of his ailment, garnering the love and admiration of staff members who work with him.


AQUARIUM:  The Aquarium of the Pacific, a nonprofit institution, is home to more than 11,000 animals and is dedicated to environmental education.
