On days like today, when your natural instinct is to crawl back into bed and hide under the covers, Adventure Aquarium’s team of dedicated biologists brave the snow and ice to take care of our more than 8,500 animals who depend on these diligent keepers to feed and watch over them!
Because penguins are fed multiple times a day, our Birds and Mammals team must stick it out through the day to feed them – once in the morning, and again in the afternoon.
Extra care must be taken with our penguin chicks, who depend on a little more care than the adult penguins. During extreme weather conditions, it’s not unheard of for a biologist to actually take a chick home with them!
The show must go on! For biologists like our Fish & Inverts team, inclement weather days mean the same normal feed schedule.
We’re all so grateful for the men and women who trudge through such awful weather conditions to ensure the safety of our finned and furry friends!
