Penguins holding a red heart

Teacher Tip: There will be pauses during the recordings to make observations or think about a question. Think about how you would like student to share their ideas/observations/questions with you during theses times.

Our penguins hold a very special place in the hearts of our staff and visitors! It takes a group of dedicated biologists to provide the love and happiness on which our penguins depend!

What happened during this Special Live Event

Students got into the Valentine’s Day spirit, and met one of our penguin biologists! Our penguin biologists flutter with love for penguins here and beyond.

Kindergarten - 2nd graders got to know what goes in a day of making sure our penguin colony has all they need to live a happy life at the Academy. Also, we got an insiders look and hear from our Academy expert about the support and efforts that help contribute to African penguins in the wild.
