Penguins Paying The Bills In Dixie

November 28, 2009

Officials at the South Carolina Aquarium have told the Penguin Post that they posted a $1.1 million profit for the first nine months of this year and will soon pay off the remaining debt from its opening nearly 10 years ago.
To no surprise aquarium officials credit a new exhibit called Penguin Planet for a 12 percent increase in aquarium visitors this year.
Aquarium President and Chief Executive Kevin Mills told The Post that the attraction needs just a few more key donors to pay the last bit of the $12 million debt the aquarium picked up when it opened in 2000.  Or perhaps Mr. Mills should bring in a few more penguins to attract more paying customers?
