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 – have your camera ready!
Penguin Photocall important note: After penguin feeding time there is usually a chance to meet one of our hand-reared penguins. This is subject to the birds, their breeding seasons and moulting status – we don’t force them to take part so are not able to promise it will always take place. The photocalls can get very busy, so please be aware once everyone waiting in the queue has been through, the sessions do end. Thank you.
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.
