African Penguin Awareness Weekend in New Jersey

Penguin Awareness_942x380

Waddle on down to the Camden New jersey Waterfront this Columbus Day Weekend (October 11 – 13) for Adventure Aquarium’s African Penguin Awareness Weekend festival, an annual celebration dedicated to everyone’s favorite little flightless feathered friends. This event features an array of “penguin-centric” activities, all of which raise money for the conservation of African Black-footed Penguins. Visitors will have the chance to meet African penguins up close during special appearances, enjoy live chats with biologists who will give the 411 on these adorable sea birds, watch custom penguin painting demonstrations or adopt one of our feathered friends in the Gift Shop.

The best part? 100% of the proceeds from the sales of Penguin Paintings and other fundraising items will go directly to support the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB), a non-profit sea bird rehabilitation center based in Cape Town, South Africa that aims to conserve and protect South Africa’s threatened sea birds. For each purchase during Adventure Aquarium’s Penguin Awareness Weekend that benefits SANCCOB, Adventure Aquarium guests will receive an “I helped save a penguin today” sticker (while supplies last).
