PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The National Aviary is asking for the public’s help to name their new penguin.
A 3-year-old female African Penguin recently came to the National Aviary from the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California, and the National Aviary wants the public to vote for one of three possible names for her. The choices are Maggie, Madison or Kenzie. The National Aviary says their new penguin was hatched in captivity and raised by penguin parents.
Go to www.namethepenguin.org to vote as many times as you want.
Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. Monday. The winning name will be announced Tuesday.
The National Aviary says they have also recently welcomed a male penguin, who could be a valuable breeding partner for the female.
“Our goal is to encourage these two to form a bond, and hopefully in the future we’ll see eggs from them,” said Teri Grendzinski, supervisor of animal collections at the National Aviary.
