Penguin Swim Lessons

After almost 14 years at SeaWorld San Diego, I just learned something new: penguins don’t know how to swim instinctively. In the wild, chicks are left alone to learn, which means waiting for the first one to take a plunge or fall in. But here at SeaWorld the keepers actually give annual swim lessons to the chicks born during the November and December hatching season. In February, about a dozen Adelie, gentoo and macaroni juveniles were secluded inside the Penguin Encounter while their adult plumage grew in.
