Micro- chipping the Penguins

Humboldt Penguins are now endangered in South America and therefore it is required by DEFRA that these penguins are under licence. In order to apply for the licence each individual has to be micro-chipped.

Dr Green injected the micro-chip into each of our 9 young penguins that we hatched this year. Once the micro chip is inserted he uses a scanner to ensure that the micro chip has been administered correctly.
