Imagine a makeshift fishing camp erected on a small island surrounded by water. Penguins can wander under and around the camp, swim beneath its pier, or sit on rocky outcroppings nearby. The island and its building—not a fishing camp at all, but a state-of-the-art facility for penguin housing, breeding and care; masterfully created within minutes of Downtown Baltimore—will serve as a center of animal operations for the new exhibit.

The Zoo’s new penguin exhibit features a state-of-the-art filtration system, a large underwater viewing window, an interpretative center, and the new Penguin Coast! The nearly 2,000 foot space will allow people to see the birds from every angle. Construction began on the new exhibit one year ago. The massive new enclosure will allow the zoo to double its number of penguins.

Space Is Limited To The First 100 Paid Registrants
