Win FREE Tickets to Aquarium of the Pacific: See the Penguin Chicks & More

The Aquarium of the Pacific invites the public to meet the newest members of its Magellanic Penguin family born this Summer. Plus, enter our giveaway below for a chance to Win Two Tickets to Visit the Aquarium.


The two female chicks went on exhibit this past Wednesday and two male chicks are slated to go on exhibit Tuesday, September 2. And you can join our giveaway to  so you can see the cute baby penguins and more at Aquarium at the Pacific. 

Parents of the chick born in late May are Kate and Avery—two of the Aquarium’s birds that were rescued off the coast of Brazil. The parents of the second female penguin born this summer are Patsy and Noodles. 


Native to Argentina and Chile, 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 ninety days the chicks fledge, losing their downy newborn feathers, which are replaced with water-tight, sub-adult feathers.

The public will also have the chance to help name Patsy and Noodles’ female chick though the Aquarium’s Adopt an Animal program by adopting at the $100 limited-edition penguin chick level or above before October 31, 2014. The person whose suggested name is chosen by Aquarium staff members will be able to go behind the scenes to participate in a feeding and training session with the penguins. All “parents” at the $100 level will receive an adoption certificate, color photo, fact sheet about the animal, a penguin plush toy, and two aquarium admission tickets. Higher levels include such benefits as Behind-the-Scenes Tours and Animal Encounters. For a full list of levels and benefits, please visit aquariumofpacific.org/adopt
