Aquarium Penguin Webcam Voted One of the Best of ‘07
Communications Manager Tennessee Aquarium & IMAX Theater
What do New York’s Times Square, Vatican City and the Tennessee Aquarium have in common? All three feature uncommon views seen on live webcams.
Thanks to the AT&T Foundation - the corporate philanthropy organization of AT&T, the Penguins’ Rock webcam at the Tennessee Aquarium has been seen from the desert of Iraq to the rainforest of South America. In addition, AT&T’s Excelerator grant has funded wireless audiovisual technology which allows the Aquarium’s penguin-keepers and educators to deliver interactive educational programs from inside the exhibit. “The AT&T Excelerator grant is making an impact at the Tennessee Aquarium every day,” said Charlie Arant, the Aquarium’s president and chief executive officer.
Recently the Tennessee Aquarium Penguins’ Rock webcam was selected by EarthCam as one of the 25 most interesting webcams of 2007. According to EarthCam, “The Penguins’ Rock webcam was selected from thousands of nominees by a panel of VIP judges and EarthCam producers.” This 9th annual list includes the most unique and compelling webcams in the world.
