Penguins settle in!

It’s World Penguin Day and our three new Humboldt arrivals are settling in well to their new home!

Bird Keepers have now integrated the youngsters with our resident five penguins in the public walkthrough exhibit and they’re all getting on swimmingly!
You’ll be able to tell them apart for the time being as the juveniles, who recently arrived from the Isle of Man, don’t have the recognisable black band on their chest, although that will appear when they gain their adult plumage.
Today’s also an apt day to reinforce our commitment to penguin conservation, with DZC pledging £1,000 for five years for Sphenisco, an in-situ project which works in Chile and Peru to save the Humboldt penguin from extinction.
