Penguin Graduates

The Penguin Post has learned that five Magellanic Penguin chicks that have been spending time at “fish school” learning how to be better penguins have passed with flying colors (even if penguins can’t fly).  At “Fish School” they were taught how to swim and were hand fed by animal-keepers at the Avian Conservation Center to help them get used to interacting with people. They have now returned to their birthplace at San Francisco Zoo after successfully graduating. The new additions bring the zoo’s total number of penguins to 49 – the largest group of Magellanic Penguins in North America.
