Penguin Pals: Namibia II

Let me introduce you to Namibia II. Namibia is an African penguin who was born here at the Aquarium on June 1, 2008. Her parents are Good Hope and Peeko.

Namibia is named after the African country of Namibia. It is located along the southwestern coast of the continent, just north of South Africa. There are nine islands off the west coast of Namibia that are African penguin breeding islands. Some of these islands include Mercury Island, Ichaboe Island, Possession Island, Roast Beef and Plum Pudding islands, Halifax Island, Sinclair Island and Neglectus Island.

Some of these island names may sound familiar to you as they are the names of penguins in previous Penguin Pal post. Stay tuned to learn about more penguins that are named after Namibian islands.
