You get to name your kids, your dog, your cat...but how many people can say they named a penguin? Now, that person could be you!

    An endangered African penguin at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh

As part of our partnership with the National Aviary, we were given the opportunity to name one of their African penguins. Thanks to everyone who sent in the great name suggestions. The winning name is Slippy!

Join us for a special Naming Ceremony at the National Aviary (700 Arch Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15212) on Saturday, June 3rd at noon. The Naming Celebration will be held in Room B – directly across from Penguin Point. Light refreshments and one of the Aviary’s African Penguins will be part of the ceremony. (Slippy is shy so he is sending a friend to take part in the festivities.)

Don’t miss your chance for a special photo opportunity with an African Penguin and the chance to explore the National Aviary to learn more about their environmental conservation efforts!
