Woodland Park Zoo – Penguin Exhibit

The 17,000-sf Humboldt penguin exhibit is part of the zoo’s long term Physical Development Plan, which generated global recognition for revolutionary exhibits that incorporate landscape immersion. The exhibit raises new standards for the care of these endangered birds, for inspiring visitors, and for conservation efforts at a sustainable zoo. The exhibit houses a colony of up to 60 Humboldt penguins. Shoreline cliffs, viewable nesting burrows, rocky tide pools, crashing waves and a beach recreate this endangered species’ Peruvian desert coastal habitat. With special windows and acrylic walls, dramatic vantage points offer guests nose-to-beak viewing as penguins splash, dive and ‘fly’ underwater. Other close encounters involve watching the busy birds preen, squabble over territory and scramble over rocky shores. Environmentally friendly design means the zoo has the planet and nature in mind. Innovative bio filtration will provide a superb aquatic environment for penguins, crystal clear viewing for visitors and dramatic water savings for everyone, thus reducing the zoo’s environmental footprint.
