Penguin Celebration!

May 12 & 19, 2018

National Aviary

Visit the National Aviary to show your support for African Penguins, which are facing extinction in the wild. Roughly 186 million people visit zoos and aquariums ever year, supporting the important work zoos, like the National Aviary, are doing to save species from extinction. Together we CAN make a difference!

Join us for fun activities throughout the day, included with admission! Check back here for a detailed schedule of events.
Adopt a Penguin

NEW! Make a lasting impression in Penguin Point

For a limited time only, you can make a donation to the National Aviary and receive a personalized brass plate in the Penguin Point exhibit. The Penguin Plaque program not only serves as a celebration of friends and family, but also provides building blocks for our future. Your brass plate engraving will make the National Aviary a better place for our birds, guests, and community!
