The new 3M Penguins of the African Coast exhibit officially opened to the public on July 9th. Home to 18 penguins, this exhibit is part of the first phase of Heart of the Zoo, which will be the first and last experience guests of the zoo will encounter.
Along with the new penguin exhibit, Heart of the Zoo will feature guest services, as well as a education and administration complex. Portico is providing landscape architecture, interpretive planning, and exhibit design services for this project.
