The team at Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium has launched a new online program to create the next generation of penguin experts. Their junior penguin keeper program launches today, July 27th and is a six-week online program.

Melbourne Aquarium is the home of a group of king and gentoo penguins, both sub-Antarctic species.

This program includes a range of downloadable worksheets, quizzes and live streams which will introduce primary school aged students to the penguins and their keepers.
