Penguin exhibit to close in Jacksonville, NC

Published: Wednesday, September 26, 2012
Less than a week remains before the penguins visiting the N.C. Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores head to a new destination.

The Penguin Plunge exhibit featuring four African penguins closes Sunday, Sept. 30. The exhibit is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Feedings and information sessions are at 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.   

The captive-bred African penguins have been at the aquarium since May, on loan from Six Flags in California. They go from here to a new permanent home at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.
