The Bruce Museum needs your help! We have a wonderful penguin in our collection, and it needs a name.
Please go to the museum's Facebook page to vote for your favorite name - or suggest your own! We'll report the winner and then cover some of the planned travels of this particular penguin in service of science and education.
So far, the leading candidates are Mrs. Bagley (after the 1942 donor of the specimen), Marples (after penguin paleontologist Brian J. Marples), Griswold (after original Bruce Museum Curator Paul Griswold Howes), and Moffat (after Robert Moffat Bruce, who ceded his estate to house the Bruce Museum in 1908).
We'll announce the winning name on January 1.
