Thank you for taking time to leave a review of your visit. I would like to talk to you about your visit and what particularly you found dirty and run-down. We are just over 3 years old and have a staff that continually roams the floor cleaning not to mention divers that do daily dives to clean all of our exhibits. Please email me at guestrelations@odyseaaquarium.com. I look forward to talking to you soon.

I am sorry that you feel this way but am curious about your concern. All of our penguins are very healthy and we know this several ways, but one main way is that they are displaying very healthy practices, one of witch is mating. We have a good amount of the penguins hatch here at Odysea. The African Black Footed Penguin is an endangered species and we work closely with the AZA to make sure they have a safe and healthy environment as we try to help sustain their existence. If you have any additional questions about the penguins or tier environment, please reach out to us as we would love to talk to you more about this. You can email us at guestrelations@odyseaaquarium.com
