Penguin Chill Exhibit
ABQ BioPark Zoo / Albuquerque, NM
Expected to open in Spring 2018, Penguin Chill, a slice of the South Pole in the Land of Enchantment, will be the ABQ BioPark Zoo’s new home for three species of penguins – Gentoo, King and Macaroni. The 60,000-gallon tank, with depths from 5 to 12 feet, will enable the penguins to feed, swim and relax in a setting akin to their natural environment. An iceberg-like façade will welcome visitors to the Sub-Antarctic environment, and interactive immersive displays will aid in the enhancement of the viewing experience. Strategically-located observation points will afford views of the penguins frolicking above and below the water.
