AAQ-00442_MothersDay_FeaturedPenguin-15.5x23We can’t wait to honor moms, both human and penguin alike, this Mother’s Day weekend in some very special ways. Not only will moms receive a special button featuring two of our newest African penguins, Nick and Carson, but they’ll also see them join the colony on exhibit at Penguin Island and learn more about how penguin moms care for their little ones, including the three penguins pictured: Taki, proud mom to daughter, Taco; Diane, mother to sons, Carson and Nick; and Minnie, mama to Shelley.




Speaking of these penguin babies…Carson, Nick, Taco and Shelley, the newest members of the largest colony in the Aquarium’s history, will make their official debut this Mother’s Day holiday weekend!
