Happy Penguin Valentine's, humans! Join our Species Survival Plan colony of African penguins—and the biologists who care for them—in this very special, scientifically adorable annual tradition. You’ll see waddling penguins nab felt hearts to line their nests (great for pair-bonding), learn about the important husbandry work done by our Steinhart Aquarium biologists, and one lucky viewer will even take home a penguin-painted masterpiece!

The $2.99 admission helps to raise funds for the Academy as we fight through our tenth month of closure due to COVID-19, but if you’re unable to contribute, we completely understand! Simply check back on the 15th to see it all for free.
