Awwwwww! Baby #penguins!


ATLANTA -- Four new African penguin chicks are making their debut at the Georgia Aquarium. The chicks have been monitored by Georgia Aquarium staff through January and can be seen by visitors starting in late February.

The African Penguin is listed as an endangered species. In 2013, the Georgia Aquarium opened the Georgia-Pacific Penguin Nursery. Staff monitor penguin eggs in a climate-controlled and protected environment before they hatch. They're then reunited with their parents over an extended period. It's a system that works. It's the fourth year in a row the Georgia Aquarium has hatched healthy African Penguin chicks.
