    A Day in the Penguin Meet & Greet

    – Teddy Allred

    Our grandsons were thrilled with getting to feed the penguins! They loved the splash park and we all enjoyed seeing all of the animals. It was a great trip and worth the drive from Kansas City! Thanks for an amazing end of summer trip!

    The best part about it is the interactive experiences. We fed giraffes, ring tailed lemurs, hippos, tortoises, and my absolute favorite, PENGUINS!

    Conservation Corner: African Penguin

    The biggest threats to African penguins are competition with humans over fish and degradation of their nesting sites. Choosing sustainably farmed seafood is one great way to help African penguins. There are numerous conservation organizations who are now building artificial nests for penguins that you can support. Our favorite is the Dyer Island Trust in South Africa!
