SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast asked the public what animal they most wanted to see and penguins came out on top!
The new Little Blue Penguins exhibit will be open to the public today, the only place you can see penguins on the Sunshine Coast. SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast has 12 adorable little blue penguins with more on the way traveling from aquariums and zoos across the country.
Little penguins are the smallest species of penguin averaging at around 33cm in height, not only are they cute and small (smol bois is what we are calling them in the office) but they have quirky unique personalities. At the exhibit, you can learn all about each little penguin personally, find out their names and discover their individual quirks.
The exhibit was built to best mimic the Little Penguin's natural habitat and guests can see them in action above and below water, which is super handy to watch the penguins enrichment activities in which they play with bubbles and go diving and swimming playfully around ice blocks.
Marine conservation is incredibly important to SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast and the Little Penguins will play a role in that as ambassadors for their species educating guests, the community and tourists about the Little Penguin and what we can do to help protect them in the wild.
Perfect time for the school holidays, you can see the little penguin exhibit officially at SEA LIFE starting tomorrow Friday the 13th of December.
