To limit the spreading of the ongoing COVID-19 most of the public places are closed all over the world. Shedd Aquarium also has closed due to this reason. It has about 2 million guests each year. Though there are no human visitors it has been visited by the penguins. The specialty is all the penguins in the premises are allowed to walk around the aquarium.
In Chicago the Shedd Aquarium has been closed and it is opened through Social Medias to the visitors
Many of the places that are closed for visitors are open through social media for the community.
While this may be a strange time for us, these days feel normal for animals at Shedd. Our caregivers are constantly providing new experiences for the animals to explore and express their natural behaviors with. Let us know what penguin activities you would like to see!

Penguins in the Amazon?! ??
Some of the penguins went on a field trip to meet other animals at Shedd. Wellington seemed most interested in the fishes in Amazon Rising! The black-barred silver dollars also seemed interested in their unusual visitor. pic.twitter.com/KgYWsp5VQD
