Penguin Romance: Love on the Rocks at the Aquarium of Niagara

 

Thu. Feb 9Thursday 6-8They’re not related to the colorful lovebirds of
Africa, but the Aquarium’s Humboldt penguins
could be called “lovebirds.” So as Valentine’s Day
approaches, the penguins, will be featured in a
special program from 6 to 8 p.m. February 9th in
the community room. Doors ope...n at 5:45 p.m.

This penguin program is dedicated to our
Peruvian birds that, like most folks, spend a lot of
time and energy on their relationships. And since
many of you love penguins, we thought you might
be inspired by the love life of our flightless birds.
When it comes to romance, there are a lot of
similarities to humans.

We have our cutest couple, the odd couple, the
May/September couple and the newly divorced
and re-partnered couples. Penguins are typically
monogamist, but there are exceptions. For
example, one male in our collection, Peeker, is 33
years old and has multiple mates. He is a penguin
playboy.

As the ultimate tribute to Valentine’s Day, some
of our penguin couples have created more than
25 original paintings, an activity conducted by the
aquarists to enrich the lives of the animals in their
care. With a little help from their keepers, the
penguins are given canvases and non-toxic paints
to create their works of art. These paintings will
be for sale after the Penguin Romance talk.

The presentation will include how to properly ID
all of the birds at the Aquarium, learn their
mating courtships and displays and why a pebble
is the best Valentine’s Day gift you could receive
this year. Light refreshments, Valentine and
penguin themed, of course, will be served after
the program.

Seating is limited and reservations are REQUIRED
for this adult social. Admission is $10; $15 for
any twosome. Reservations can be made at 285-
3575 ext 206. All proceeds benefit the Aquarium
and its creatures.
