DZC’s success in the international breeding programme for Humboldt penguins spans more than two decades. Back in 1991 we started our programme with just five hand reared chicks. Today our colony is more than 70-strong and one of the largest parent-reared groups in Europe.

Lorikeet Lookout is an interactive walkthrough area where you can feed these brightly coloured birds pots of nectar.
