Humboldt Penguin Experience

Seattle, WA

The Woodland Park Zoo Penguin Exhibit includes a new 41,000 gallon pool and 17,000-square-foot exhibit which will house the Humboldt Penguins.

The exhibit is designed to be environmentally friendly for penguins and people by implementing a filtration system which will recycle virtually all of the water.

Shoreline cliffs, rocky tide pools, and nesting borrows will be constructed to replicate the penguins natural habitat. Large viewing glass will enable guests to see the penguins reach their top speeds of 17 mph.
