Name Our Baby Rockhopper Penguin

On December 11, 2020, a female southern rockhopper chick hatched at Penguin & Puffin Coast — the first at our Zoo in 11 years. We need your help choosing a name! Our bird keepers selected four potential names for the chick: Pebbles, Opal, Luna and Lumi. Go to stlzoo.org/NameThePenguin to vote in our poll and read this remarkable hatch story, which involves the penguin chick's biological parents and foster parents.
