Penguin

Snuggle Up with a Formal Feathered Friend

Denver Zoo is home two penguin species—our Humboldt penguin flock, which lives across from Monkey Island, and our African penguin flock, which lives in our newest exhibit, Pinnacol African Penguin Point. Natural comedians in feathered formal wear, penguins boast more than 70 feathers per square inch and can swim up to 15 miles per hour and turn on a dime by using their stubby tail as precise rudder

African penguins are currently endangered. With your symbolic adoption of a plush penguin, you’re helping us continue to provide world-class care to Denver Zoo’s two beloved flocks and all of our 3,000 animals—while helping us protect their counterparts in the wild, too.
