Come and say hello!

Watch the chick's first moments!

Another success for our Gentoo penguin breeding programme!

The animal care team are extremely excited with the news. Since the arrival of the colony in 2014, the team have been working hard to ensure the conditions are perfect for the penguins to breed. 

The new baby penguin is currently feeding from it's parents before it's old enough to learn how to feed independently. Parents and guests will soon see the baby penguin plodding around it's home and taking it's first plunge into the icy water.

Come and say hello!
