The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach is shipping off two Magellanic penguins, the aquarium announced Wednesday.

“Jayde” and “Skipper” will be transported to other facilities connected to the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) to become part of new breeding colonies, managers said.

Both penguins hatched at the Aquarium of the Pacific in 2014.

“While we are sad to see them go, we know they will be welcomed and given the utmost care and will play an important role in ensuring a healthy population,” the aquarium tweeted.
