The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago is closed to visitors so, employees felt this was a great time to allow their penguins to roam free.  A group  rockhopper penguins were allowed to leave their habitat and explore the rest of the aquarium. “Without guests in the building, caretakers are getting creative in how they provide enrichment to animals,” the aquarium told the Chicago tribune “Introducing new experiences, activities, foods and more to keep them active, encourage them to explore, problem-solve and express natural behaviors.”
