Penguins return. Otters too. - News - Hurricane Penguins Heading Back To New Orleans:
"MONTEREY, Calif. -- A group of penguins rescued from the Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina are heading home after a stay at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Nineteen penguins will return to New Orleans on Monday. The Aquarium of the Americas is scheduled to reopen next week.
. . . . . . .
The penguins entertained visitors from around the world during their stay in Monterey, but their caretakers and fans in New Orleans are anxiously awaiting their return.

'I'm on pins and needles and in fact, I think the whole city here is. I can't leave my house without people saying, 'Almost there Tom?,' or, 'When are they coming back?,' and that's been since they were evacuated out there,' said Tom Dyer, of the Aquarium of the Americas."
