Ready to feed penguins?
Do you fancy feeding some …(fish) to one of your favorite feathered friends? In this unforgettable (one-to-one) experience, you’ll get to meet the penguin colony during their lunchtime and feed them while you look at them face to face.
Tanganyika is the home of a colony of more than 50 African penguins. This endangered species is original from Namibia and South Africa and is declining in the wild due to a variety of threats, including oil spills and industrial fishing. Tanganyika Wildlife Park has successfully partnered with other zoos in the US to help with their colonies and breeding programs.
An interesting fact you may not know about this wonderful species is that each African penguin has a unique and distinct pattern of black spots on the white chest as unique as human fingerprints. So fine-tune your vision while feeding them to recognize who is who.
