Sophie Hales Penguin Encounter!
Yesterday we were visited by Sophie Hale who took part in a very special Penguin Encounter!
Sophie is from the Island and visits the park regularly. She also won our ‘Name the Penguin’ competition last month! Her suggestion of ‘Kiki’ was chosen for one of our female penguins- seen in the photo below on the right with red & yellow coloured tags.
Sophie first fed the Humboldt Penguins lots of their favourite fish and then was able to get up close to a few of our friendly characters!
After that we took Sophie to the Incubation House where she met our gorgeous baby penguin chicks and watched them have their afternoon feed!
