Please join us in sea-lebrating a VERY special Happy Hatchday to birdday boy Durban, the eldest of our African penguins—28 laps around the sunfish for this sweet man!!
African penguins tend to live 15-20 years in the wild, and often double that in zoos and aquariums with access to veterinary care and readily-available food.
African penguins at the Aquarium are part of a Species Survival Plan to help bolster the genetics of their wild cousins. More about our work here!
