Description: Back for a celebratory but brief encore, a small exhibit of Africa penguins will be on special display for two months. They waddle comically on land but swim gracefully in the water, all while dressed semi-formally in black-and-white attire. And they're not all from the South Pole. African penguins actually are native to temperate South Africa. Come learn more about these birds, whose conservation status is listed as vulnerable. Penguin encounters are available for an additional fee.
