Party for the Penguins

July 19 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

The NEW Zoological Society and the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park invite you to waddle on in for the Party for the Penguins on Friday, July 19th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Proceeds from this event will support conservation, with funds raised supporting African penguins through SAFE: Saving Animals from Extinction. This event is free with regular zoo admission.

During our Party for the Penguins event, guests can enjoy a variety of fun activities, such as kids’ games and crafts, penguin encounters, a Penguin Discovery Station, carousel rides, and more. Stop by the Penguin Merchandise Sales Tables to browse a selection of penguin crafts and gifts, including paintings made by our very own penguins! An African Penguin Zookeeper Chat will take place at 10:00 a.m. alongside the penguin habitat, and a public Penguin Feeding will take place at 12:30 p.m. by the penguin bridge.

African penguins are an endangered species whose population has declined by 97% since the turn of the 20th century. Penguins are vulnerable to pollution of their ocean habitat, and to human interference related to guano and egg collection, overfishing, and loss of their nesting sites to human developments.
