Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire will host activities today as part of Penguin Awareness Day.
It hopes to teach visitors about the birds and the threats they face in the wild.
The zoo holds 19 Humboldt penguins which are classified as vulnerable species.
Did you know?...
- In some species, the male penguin incubates the egg while the female goes out to hunt for food. For that reason, pudgy male penguins - who have enough fat to keep warm without eating - are the most desirable.
- In order to stay alive during the harsh Antarctic winter, emperor penguins huddle together in groups of up to 5,000 to keep warm.
- Fossils place the earliest penguin relative at some 60 million years ago, meaning an ancestor of the birds we see today survived the mass extinction of the dinosaurs.
- Unlike most sea mammals—which rely on blubber to stay warm—penguins's feathers trap a layer of hot air next to their skin. This serves as insulation.
