World Penguin Day

Event Details

Waddle you do during this event? Learn about the penguins of course. The Milwaukee County Zoo has three species of penguins. The Humboldt penguins are the most visible and live near the U.S. Bank Gathering Place, and the Gentoo and rockhoppers live in the same habitat inside the Herb & Nada Mahler Family Aviary. During World Penguin Day you can learn about the adaptations that make penguins so “cool,” like how their layer of fat keeps them warm, how their black and white color protects them or why their body shape helps them fly under water. But don’t let us “blubber” on about these awesome animals. See for yourself!

Stop by Guest Services in the U.S. Bank Gathering Place to sponsor your favorite penguin!

Admission for World Penguin Day is free for Zoo Pass and Platypus Circle members.
