The Shedd Aquarium needs our help in selecting a name for their ten month old rockhopper penguin chick.


According to WGN chick "Number 23" needs a name and the Shedd Aquarium along with the "Lurie Children’s Hospital " came up with contest entitled '#WaddleItBe' contest to choose a new name for the chick.

The approved choices are:

  • Lennox (for Isla Lennox, Chile)
  • Dawson (for Isla Dawson, Chile)
  • Diego (for Isla Diego de Almargo, Chile)
  • Javier (for Isla Javier, Chile)
