Rockhopper Penguin

 

ON DISPLAY THROUGHOUT THE ZOO  May 24-September 30

ZORABELLE THE ROCKHOPPER PENGUIN

Penguins are flightless birds that live in incredibly varied habitats from ice shelves to desert islands. All penguin species, except the Galapagos penguin, are found only in the southern hemisphere.

Rockhopper penguin populations have been in steady decline over the past century.  Marine pollution, loss of food availability, and commercial fishing have all played a part in their numbers plummeting.
