Greensboro Science Center Welcomes New African Penguin Chick

GREENSBORO -- As the year draws to a close, the Greensboro Science Center is celebrating 2015's first African penguin chick.

They still don't know the baby's gender but it only weighed about two ounces when it was born and is now up to a whopping three-and-a-half pounds.

The Greensboro Science Center is a participant in the species survival plan, a global program to help preserve endangered and threatened animals.
