We'll start in food prep to prepare the afternoon diet for our whole colony and learn more about our African penguins' routine here at the GSC. Then we'll step behind the scenes into our African penguin habitat, Penguin Point. Here you'll learn more about African penguins with one of our very knowledgeable keepers while you record the penguins' diet and then feed our penguins.
