Live Penguin Cams 

April 10, 2009

While I am Away


There are times when you are away from work that require other staff members to  fill in for you.  Working with penguins is exactly the same.  I will be away from the Academy for a week and a 1/2 and other staff members will be working with the penguins.  There are 3 different staff members you will see in the exhibit: Brooke, Vikki and Allan.  The penguins will behave differently with each of the staff and will feed differently from each of the staff.  As you watch the cameras, you will observe these differences.  The penguins can adapt to these differences easily.  As a staff we all work together to ensure the health and well being of the entire African penguin colony.

  1. Miss you blogs, Pam. Which is the really huge penguin? Looks like it’s not quite an adult yet.

  2. If humans are sick and are around the penguins, will the penguins get sick too?
