A summer school for five penguin chicks has opened for the Class of 2015.
Summer holiday countdown might be on for children in Wales, but for another set of youngsters, ‘school’ is about to start.
The first two penguin chicks at Folly Farm have fledged from the nest and been taken into a special penguin nursery enclosure where they will learn key penguin survival skills.
All five penguin chicks at the zoo have been named after Disney characters - Cogsworth, Bagheera, Abu, Scuttle and Thumper.
After a few months at 'Penguin school' they will graduate back into the penguin community in a few months' time.
In the wild, half of all penguin chicks won’t survive by themselves. As they are an endangered species, Folly Farm is one of many zoos that takes the young penguins into a nursery enclosure until their waterproof feathers are fully grown, and they have learned to eat independently.
Folly Farm currently has 35 penguins, including the five new chicks. The eldest penguin, at 22 years of age, is Holly, closely followed by her partner of some 20 years, Harry. Penguin life expectancy is around 22 in the wild and 30 in captivity.

Plans for a trial smoke-free beach in Pembrokeshire have been backed by the local council.
The ban would be voluntary, on a designated local beach, for a trial period.
It mirrors similar initiatives in Italy, Australia and the US, and council members say it would be 'a tremendous health and economic driver' for the county - although it would not be enforced.
A council committee also backed proposals to introduce a ban on cigarettes and e-cigarettes on playgrounds, extending to playing fields, sports grounds and nearby car parks.
We need to safeguard our children and young people from the harm of smoking and the rapidly developing interest by the under 18s in e-cigarettes.
Seeing adults smoking in areas where sports are taking place and children are playing helps to normalise smoking making it seem harmless.
Tobacco kills more than 5,000 people in Wales every year, not to mention the costs to health and other services from treatment of smoking related illnesses
Both proposals will be discussed further before a final decision is made.
Pembrokeshire Council has approved proposals to ban smoking on one of its beaches in a trial move.Read the full story ›
