Penguins are among our most beloved animals here at Georgia Aquarium. Now, in our Penguin Encounter, you can go behind the scenes of our Cold Water Quest gallery and meet a penguin! In this program, you’ll enjoy an up close and personal encounter with a penguin, and you’ll also learn much more about these incredible animals, including how we care for them, as well as our research and conservation initiatives on their behalf – which are supported by your ticket dollars and participation in this program! At the close of this approximately-30-minute experience, you’ll have a greater understanding and appreciation of these remarkable birds, and you’ll even take home a professional photo of your memorable day courtesy of Georgia Aquarium.
