TAIPEI (The China Post) — The sudden drop in temperature paired with the approaching new year makes the perfect time to plan a trip to the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium in Pingtung to get up close and personal with its cute little animals, especially its penguins.
What makes it so special is that for the first time ever, the museum is launching a “0.1mm between me and penguins” feeding experience in Taiwan, which will be open to the public in February 2021.
Until now, people in Taiwan could only watch the penguins walk and swim through thick glass panes.
The museum came up with the event in the hopes of helping more people understand the habits and lifestyle of penguins and also to educate them on the importance of protecting and caring for the animals.
By only allowing a limited number of people per day, this experience will let the public observe the penguins at close range and experience the climate and ecology of Antarctica–the original habitat of the penguins.
Visitors will be able to act as a penguin breeder and feed the penguins with bait to partake in this (possibly) once-in-a-lifetime experience.
In addition to the feeding experience, the penguins’ care center in the back will also be opened for the first time to the public, where guided tours introducing breeding equipment such as pebbles, hatching boxes and bait for penguins await visitors.
In addition to the unforgettable memories of close contact with the penguins, it also provides deeper educational meaning.
Interested parties can now book the tickets online, where tickets will be sold starting January 2021.
