THE AQUARIUM OF THE PACIFIC announced the birth of two Magellanic penguin chicks. The penguins hatched at the Aquarium to first-time parents Floyd and Roxy, residents of the Aquarium’s June Keyes Penguin Habitat. The one-month-old chicks are currently being cared for behind the scenes at the Aquarium and will be on public view when they join the other birds in the penguin habitat later this summer. In the meantime, the chicks can be seen via webcam from the Aquarium of the Pacific’s website: www.aquariumofpacific.org.
