The Aquarium’s Magellanic Penguins are tending to their nests, incubating eggs, and caring for chicks during the breeding season.
Our penguins are in the middle of their breeding season, and we are hopeful that this will bring new additions to the Aquarium family. We invite you to tune in to our nest webcam. Successfully hatching an egg and raising a chick can be a difficult task for penguin parents. Shim and Whatever have experience as surrogate parents raising a chick. We are hoping this year may bring one of their own and have placed a webcam in their burrow over their nest. This could be the first time they incubate an egg and hatch a chick. We still do not know if the egg is fertile or how they will do this year, but we are hoping for the best. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
