Description

Warning: Cute alert! Pocket Penguins, streaming in real-time from the California Academy of Sciences, provides an intimate view into our live African penguin exhibit. Watch the birds swim, dive, flirt, nest and relax from any one of three live webcams. Listen in as Academy biologists answer questions from visitors during meal time, daily at 10:30am and 3:00pm PST.

The Academy's penguins are part of the American Zoo and Aquarium Association's Species Survival Program, aimed at conserving this species in the wild. African penguins (Spheniscus demersus) live off the coast of South Africa and Namibia. In 2010, the International Union for Conservation of Nature classified the species as endangered, or at very high risk of extinction in the wild.

Customer Reviews

So disappointing.

I loved this app. It was fascinating and relaxing. And the new bling really is cool, but functionality just jumped out the window. I have no feed from the underwater camera, and static on Biologist. When I switch to the main camera, I get a good feed for just under a minute, and it drops out to black. I am hoping these are just glitches and gremlins, but they have to be more reliable.
