Name that penguin!

Our last post introduced some of our newest arrivals here at the New England Aquarium – a throng of pudgy African penguin chicks. We are really excited about all these healthy chicks, and we want to share our excitement with the rest of you. Help us choose a name for one of our young penguins before it is introduced into the main exhibit!

Here's the deal: All of our penguins have education or conservation related names, so the name you enter needs to teach a bit about African penguins. We’ve already posted some examples of this on the blog with Robben, Sea-Cat, Roast Beef and Plum Pudding. There are more tips on how to choose a conservation-themed name on the contest page. Once you come up with a name that you think will impress us, use this form to submit it. Aquarium biologists will choose their favorite name and the winner will be awarded a behind-the-scenes tour of the Aquarium’s penguin exhibit! Put your thinking cap on, the contest runs from Friday, August 13, through Sunday, August 22.

Good luck!
