The loss of an old friend
The aquarium is saddened by the loss of its oldest penguin Henry, who passed away [Nov. 27] due to complications associated with his old age. At 24 years old, Henry had been showing signs of decline, including loss of appetite and lethargy and was under close watch and care by the aquarium’s veterinary and animal husbandry teams. Henry had been a resident of the June Keyes Penguin Habitat since 2012 and will be greatly missed.
