Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park is celebrating Penguin Awareness Day (Jan. 20, 2020) with a new addition to their endangered African penguin family. The Gulfarium, located on Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach, revealed that a penguin chick hatched at the park on December 20th, 2019. “African penguins are an endangered species,” says Mary Kate Northup, Gulfarium’s Operations Manager. “They are at serious risk of extinction, so any effort we can do to help preserve the species is vital.”
