At the Zoo - April 27 / 10:00 am

Celebrate penguins by visiting Seneca Park Zoo for World Penguin Day on Saturday, April 27.

Discover how AZA-accredited facilities like your Zoo are working to restore the African penguin population through programs like SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction.

Learn about the threats African penguins face in their natural range, such as oil spills and over-fishing, and find out how you can help protect them by practicing responsible consumerism and supporting the Zoo’s longtime conservation partner, SANCCOB, a nonprofit organization working to save seabirds.

For a donation to penguin conservation, enter a drawing to win a custom painting made by one of the Zoo’s African penguins or a drawing to be present for the creation of your own personal painting made by one of the penguins – you’ll even get to pick the colors!
