MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Today is World Penguin Day and the Milwaukee County Zoo is celebrating!
Folks headed to the zoo on Saturday, April 25th, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., are able to learn more about penguins through a zookeeper talk presented by one of the penguin keepers. According to the Milwaukee County Zoo, visitors will also be able to learn more about how to care for penguins, how to make sure the zoo penguins stay healthy, as well as seeing an actual X-ray of the penguins.
Visitors are also able to purchase a delicious ground fish and supplements ‘milkshake’ to help feed the penguins! The proceeds will benefit the Humboldt Penguin Conservation Fund, which is in partnership with the Zoological Society.
The Milwaukee County Zoo is open Saturday from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
If you don’t want to get out of the house today, you still have a chance to see some penguins! The Milwaukee County Zoo has set up a live stream video of the penguin exhibit for anyone to view online.
