 Our world renown Mote Marine Lab, on City Island between St. Armands Circle and Longboat Key, will soon be featuring six black-footed penquins in the exhibit known as Penquin Island.  Originally from South Africa, this penquin variety thrives in our temparate weather and will be joining our human snowbirds flocking to our islands from November 1, 2011  through February 29, 2012.

Like many of Mote’s other residents, wild black-footed penquins are on the endangered list.  While at the exhibit, you will be able to “adopt” a penquin for just $30 and a portion of proceeds will help penquins in the wild.
