The Penguins Have a New Home!

The Denver Zoo has a new home for their beloved penguins.

A new and improved penguin habitat opened at the Denver Zoo on September 30. Although endangered in their native range, 18 African penguins now have a safe (and quite posh) place to call home. The Pinnacol African Penguin Point habitat features a 10,000-gallon pool for swimming, wave machine, multiple burrows and nest boxes, and surfaces that mimic the birds’ Cape of Good Hope origins. Zoo guests have access to 40 feet of underwater viewing space.
