Comical and captivating, the zoo’s Humboldt penguin colony is a joy to watch. Join us for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Penguin Coast led by senior animal care staff. We will visit the husbandry building, where penguins can spend time indoors, as well as the life support systems building which houses all of the equipment needed to maintain a critical balance in the 50,000-gallon pool. Guests will have the chance to chat with the staff who care for the penguins firsthand, and learn about how the Rosamond Gifford Zoo contributes to the Humboldt penguin Species Survival Plan. Come see for yourself how your local accredited zoo is making a difference in the future of this endangered species.
