Name our puffin chick!

Published August 25, 2010

At just 2 months old, our male puffin chick is looking more and more like the adult puffins each day! It is now time to give him a proper name. With the help of Aquarium staff and the public, we have narrowed down the suggestions to five solid puffin names. It is now up to our friends and followers to NAME THAT PUFFIN! Cast your vote today! Voting will close on Tuesday, September 7, at 11:59 p.m. EDT. The puffin's new name will be revealed live on WMAR Ch. 2 News on September 9. TEXT your favorite name choice to 30644 (msg and data rates may apply), or vote online below: [polldaddy poll=3668021] Want to learn more about puffins? Join us for Morning With the Puffins: Curator Talk on September 25 from 7:45-9 a.m. Explore our newly renovated puffin exhibit and learn more about its feathered occupants during a morning talk with one of our respected curators.
