Brooke Family meets the Penguins!
Derek and Sharon Brooke along with their two sons Connor and Mason visited the park on Sunday 6th May for their Penguin Encounter.
Originally from Essex, they are visiting the Island whilst on a family holiday.
Sharon absolutely loves penguins and has always wanted to see them up close, so it was amazing being able to show her around the penguin enclosure, where she was able to hand feed them!
It was lovely that she could share the experience with the rest of her family too, who also had a great time getting up close to the cheeky penguins!
A highlight for Sharon was being able to hold one of our newly hatched two day old penguin chicks!
When asked what they thought of the encounter, the family said it was ‘Fantastic, Exceptional and Fun!’.
We were also told: ‘The only reason we came to the Isle of Wight was for the Penguin Experience!’.
It is wonderful hearing such positive feedback, and we thoroughly enjoyed showing the family round for the morning.
