What: Penguin Encounters at Brookfield Zoo
Where: Brookfield Zoo
When: Saturday, June 1st from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
When you arrive for your encounter you will enter the Penguin Encounter room, which is located just past the Humboldt penguin habitat in The Living Coast, right before the building exit. You will be greeted by a penguin keeper who will help get all participants settled in and prepped for the encounter. You will hear about our resident Humboldt penguins, their behavior and fun facts, plus learn some basics on how to safely interact with our resident ambassador penguins.
The penguins will arrive with a second keeper and the birds will be allowed to mingle with the encounter participants. Like people each of the penguins have distinct personalities and interests. They’re allowed to interact with whoever they choose!
During the Penguin Encounter
During the encounter one keeper will accompany the penguin through the group of participants while the other shares details of our conservation work in Punta San Juan (Peru) with the penguin’s wild counterparts. The penguins participate in the encounter by their own free choice, walking the short distance from their exhibit to the encounter room.
The experience is open to only 1st and 2nd grade Agassiz students.
Parents are responsible for drop off and pick up. Drop off and pickup location will be confirmed with teacher prior to the event date.
