Penguins

SEA LIFE has helped breed baby King Penguins, Gentoo Penguins, and Humboldt Penguins.

Penguins are playful! They love to slide down icy patches on their bellies and take turns to dive into the ocean. Did you know their black and white pattern is a form of camouflage? It helps them blend in with the water and keep safe from predators.

Penguins are found almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere. They are ‘flightless’ birds but they can soar through the water like a torpedo to catch fish! There are 17 species of penguins but they are running out of food! This is due to over-fishing and global warming.
