Hey folks, just joined the the community about 20 seconds ago. I've been working with the penguins at the NEAQ for about 5 months now. We've got Little Blues, Rockhoppers (long and short crested), and a whole truckload of Africans. Just sayin' hi for now.

I just volunteered w/the aquarium. The one here requires one day a week for six months, and they really try to make sure you stick to that, so it's no small commitment.

I'm almost done with it actually, one month left to go, and then I get my saturdays back. :)

Oh, there are also age (18) and height (5'3" I think) minimums.

We spend a lot of time wadeing throught the water in the exhibit, and it's pretty deep in places, so a short person would have difficulty.

The aquarium is leery of volunteers posting pics on-line, but people are taking digi-photos there all the time, so a modestly thorough google search should do the trick for you.
