We have a lot of activities planned that will include children's crafts, educational presentations and the opportunity to see Magellanic penguins up close and chat with their keepers. Special “penguin art” will also be on sale with all proceeds to benefit the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund. World Penguin Day is a celebration that coincides with the annual northern migration of penguins.
The Penguin Encounter at SeaWorld San Antonio is home to penguins representing four sub-Antarctic species including king, gentoo, rockhopper and chinstrap. Most of our penguins swim and waddle in the 36-degree, snow-filled Encounter. Magellanic penguins, a warm-weather species native to Chile and Argentina, can be seen during the presentations.
