Penguin Encounter

Due to COVID-19 you must wear a mask for this adventure. You also will NOT be permitted to pet the penguins at this time.

Ever wonder what it’s like to be up close to a penguin?

Don’t miss our Penguin Encounter! Imagine a close-up meeting with
an African penguin – a 30-minute experience where you
go behind the scenes and learn how our animal experts care for these
playful birds. You’ll see the inner workings of the Penguin Pavilion
exhibit firsthand, and learn how staff cares for the exhibit’s residents.
Nothing’s cuter than seeing them waddle, swim, even shake their tail feathers! And you can capture this incredible moment because photos are permitted!

Thursdays – Sundays at 1:15pm
