This summer, Birch Aquarium at Scripps in San Diego will debut the little blue penguins exhibit. With the addition of Beyster Family Little Blue Penguins habitat, the addition makes Birch Aquarium the only one in the Western United States to house the world’s smallest penguins. The little blue penguins are less than 12 inches tall, weigh only 2–3 pounds, and are known for their unique blue color and big personalities. Guests will be immersed into the world of the little blue penguins by learning some of the challenges these birds face in the wild and how our future is directly related to theirs. The exhibit will feature a small amphitheater for guests to observe the birds, as well as a discovery cave for children to observe the little blue penguins closely.
