Today Is National Penguin Awareness Day

Today is National Penguin Awareness Day.

At the Essex County Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange, they have 4 new penguins.Since summer 2008, the zoo’s penguins have been in their new home in a renovated exhibit which replicates the South African coastline where these birds are found in the wild.

You can be up close with these comical flightless birds and learn all about these amazing creatures.

If you watch the the TODAY SHOW with Kathie Lee and Hoda today, two of their penguins are slated to make a brief appearance.
