Meet the penguin team

Pam Schaller has worked with our colony of African penguins for the past nine years. She also works with our group of dog-faced fruit bats, and maintains many of the freshwater fish exhibits.
Brooke Weinstein has been working with the penguins for five years. She takes care of several other exhibits including the Amazon flooded forest and the freshwater stingrays.
Allan Jan began working with our penguin colony two years ago. He also maintains numerous freshwater fish exhibits seen throughout the aquarium.
Vikki McCloskey started working with the Steinhart penguins last year. She primarily works with the rainforest birds and the raptors.
Pam ‘Monty’ Montbach is the newest member of the penguin team. She is the primary caretaker of the jellies in the aquarium.

  1. I love this exhibit! For anyone in the bay area who hasn’t gone to see the penguins yet, you’re missing a wonderful show. They have such a spirit to them that I just feel upbeat and energized after a few minutes there. Very endearing.
