Where: Maryland Zoo

When: Sept. 27- Oct. 31st, 2014

When you think of penguins, you probably think of icebergs, polar bears, and movies about a happy little tap-dancer. The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is showing penguins in a whole new light with their latest exhibit, Penguin Coast, a South-Africa-inspired habitat for African penguins, a penguin species unique to the African continent. Not only will the exhibit allows guests to get a much closer look at the adorable birds with its underwater viewing, wave action, and water features, but it will also provide resources for penguin housing, breeding, and care that will assist this endangered species. To find out more, visit the Maryland Zoo website!
