Be a P.A.L.: Protector of Aquatic LifeIn honor of our new waddle of penguin chicks, the Tennessee Aquarium is proud to announce our P.A.L. (Protector of Aquatic Life) Program. The P.A.L. program is a brand new opportunity to symbolically adopt an Aquarium animal while supporting all aspects of the care and enrichment of the species in our care.  The program is beginning in Fall 2013 with an opportunity to become a Penguin P.A.L.. Other animals will be added to the P.A.L. program in early 2014.
