Join biologists from the California Academy of Sciences—and one very fluffy special guest—to learn all about African penguins. At just one month old, the newest addition to the Academy’s African penguin colony, a male chick named Curry, is ready to greet the world. To honor the Academy’s Bay Area roots, biologists have named the chick after Golden State Warriors’ star point guard Stephen Curry. 

Ever wonder what it takes to care for a colony of curious penguins? During this special Google Hangout, go behind-the-scenes to meet Academy biologist Crystal Crimbchin, who will give viewers a special look at the aquarium’s newest penguin resident.

The Academy has a long and successful history of breeding African penguins, and Curry is the fourth penguin chick to hatch this year. African penguins were classified as an endangered species in 2010 and are at very high risk of extinction in the wild. The Academy’s colony is part of the Species Survival Plan, a collaborative conservation program aimed at maintaining healthy genetic populations for future generations.
