Well worth a visit.
Knowledgable and helpful staff are on hand to answer all your questions. And they are doing an amazing job educating and rehabilitating.
Children especially will love it as the penguins are extremely cool and funny.
Everyone is helpful and it is educational. Definitely a great adventure for children and adults. How can anyone not find penguin feeding absolutely adorable? Thank you for everything you do to raise awareness and help our little feathery friends.
