Penguins celebrate World Penguin Day

15th April 2016

World Penguin day is the 25th April and several young penguins at Paradise Park will be celebrating it for the very first time!

Curator David Woolcock explains “Paradise Park is home to a breeding colony of Humboldt’s Penguins. These wonderful little characters are extremely popular with visitors. We are able to offer summer season close encounters at ‘Penguin Photocalls’ (11am & 3pm) which follow the feeding/talk sessions each day during the summer. Visitors are able to gently stroke a friendly penguin and take photos.

For penguins ‘Miski’ and ‘Rory’, who were born in May 2015, this will be their first World Penguin Day, and they are usually involved in these photocall sessions, which are always memorable and a delight for children and adults alike.”

Below is a photo of Miski and Rory from last summer.

Why not wear black and white to show your support on World Penguin Day!

The Humboldt’s Penguin lives along the coasts of Chile and Peru where it can be very warm. They have a bare patch of skin on their faces which can blush red, helping them to cool down. This species is considered ‘Vulnerable’ in the wild due to human interference and pollution. More infomation available here
