It's the most waddle-ful time of the year! Join our Species Survival Plan colony of African penguins—and the biologists who care for them—in this scientifically adorable annual tradition. You’ll see curious penguins nab felt hearts to line their nests (great for pair-bonding) and learn about the important husbandry work done by our Steinhart Aquarium biologists.
