Tune in at 10:30 am and 3 pm daily for a live feeding demonstration with our penguin biologists.
It may be the waddling. Or their sophisticated tuxedoes. Or perhaps it’s the fact that they are highly social and form long-term bonds.

The Academy’s colony of African penguins (Spheniscus demersus) does just that, while helping educate thousands of visitors a day about their fascinating biology and plight in the wild.
