As if we needed an excuse to talk about penguins. But, since you asked, Saturday, January 20, is National Penguin Awareness Day! To celebrate, we have a super-fun video of … you guessed it—penguins!
Mountain America Credit Union proudly sponsors the penguin enclosure at the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium in Draper, Utah. We recently stopped by to chat with bird and mammal keeper, Karli Healy. Karli gets to spend every day with these cute little bundles of energy and she’s amazing at her job. We wondered what it takes to keep the penguins happy and thriving and also—spoiler alert—why Uno loves to be with people!
