During the penguin feeding sessions some lucky children are invited to come in to the penguin enclosure to feed a fish to the penguins.
DURING THE SUMMER (Easter to end of October) we have the Penguin Photocall
Visitors are allowed (a couple/family at a time) to sit with and stroke a friendly penguin while another member of the family can take photos – so don’t forget your camera!
Important note: For 2016 the photocall should be happening everyday during the summer (weather permitting). But please be aware that the penguin photocall does not always happen during the breeding season, which tends to be April to June and sometimes a few weeks in July. If you want to confirm that this event is happening before you visit please call us on 01736 7583365.
This is very popular, so please be aware there can be a wait while we get everyone through to meet a penguin!
More about our HUMBOLDT’S PENGUINS
Adult penguins have a dark band of feathers above their chests, along with speckles in the white area below. These speckles are in a unique pattern in each penguin so can help identify individuals. To find our more about our penguins please click here.
