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.
