    New African penguin chicks just hatched at Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration! Starting today, people around the world can watch them grow into full fledglings on a live Web cam at Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration.

    The chicks are nesting in an area of the Roger Tory Peterson Penguin Exhibit that is off public view.

    Once fully fledged, the chicks will either join the 26 adult African penguins on exhibit at the aquarium or go to other facilities that house the species.

    The cam, which can be accessed from the Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration Web site homepage (Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration), will be on daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with occasional breaks when the chicks are removed from the room.
