Endangered penguin chicks break records at Audubon Aquarium


New Orleans, La. - The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas announces the hatching of three endangered African Blackfooted penguin chicks - making a record of eleven chicks hatched at the Aquarium in one year.

Hatched in late August, the chicks are growing quickly and have permanently joined the penguin colony on exhibit.
