Sharing the Love
Why do we love penguins? Maybe it's because they waddle, or because they're dressed up for every occasion, or even because their personalities might remind us of ourselves. Regardless, they're one of the most loveable birds around.
Our colony of African penguins in Splash Zone is a must-see on any visit. Most of them came from the Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans, arriving in 2005 for the debut of the family gallery. In the wild, these penguins live in cold currents along the rocky, rugged coast of South Africa—conditions very similar to our penguin colony's Monterey home.
