Penguin Enrichment using tablets

An interesting use of technology in the enrichment program for their Magellanic penguins in the Aquarium of the Pacific in LA. Experimenting with many objects to engage the naturally curious birds, aviculturist Sara Mandel found that the penguins took quite a liking to an iPad game she got for her cats. To Mandel’s surprise, the little birds became obsessed and playing with the tablet is now a part of their daily enrichment routine—something that ultimately benefits the cute critters’ mental and physical well-being.
