Penguin Therapy

The Penguin Post has learned about a unique penguin ambassador that may be waddling to a school or event near you (if you live in the Boston area).  Later this week residents of the Hannah Duston Rehabilitation Center, a nursing home in Haverhill Massachusetts, will be getting a visit from a very special tuxedoed gentleman, Roast Beef the African penguin.  He resides at the New England Aquarium, but his real gig is being a specially trained penguin ambassador, spreading smiles and penguin cheer on his outings to schools and community events.  The five-pound penguin even travels in his own special air-conditioned crate. This will be Roast Beef’s first time at a nursing home, but aquarium officials aren’t worried because, they say, “Penguins are clearly loved by people of all ages.” Clearly. It’s bound to be a magical visit, since Roast Beef’s nickname is “The Ladies Man.”

Roast Beef the Penguin spreads good cheer on visits all over new England.
