While only members had the opportunity to ask questions and watch this event live, we invite everyone to take a gander at this archived hangout. There's a lot to learn about the penguins on vacation, the little blue penguins on Central Wharf as well as the construction project. Our members had some great questions—like what do penguins feel like, what do they eat and what did it take to create their vacation home in Quincy!
Members who listened to the whole webcast were invited to take a survey about the experience. One lucky person who complete the survey got to win a one-of-a-kind piece of art and New England Aquarium memorabilia. Congratulations to Ian from Cambridge, whose name was randomly selected from those who watched our Member Hangout with the Penguins live and completed our survey within the allotted time. He’ll receive a unique artwork created from parts of the coral sculpture that were in our Giant Ocean Tank from 1984 until we started construction last fall, along with a letter of authenticity from Bud Ris, the President and CEO of New England Aquarium.
