Calgary Zoo Penguin Plunge

Calgary Zoo
Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Featuring a 9,200-gallon pool outside and a 32,000-gallon pool inside (both freshwater), this exhibit reflects the natural habitat of four distinct penguin species: Humboldt, Gentoo, Rock Hopper, and Kings. Depending on the time of year, the penguins will rotate between the interior and exterior exhibits. The exterior exhibit is part of the new entry plaza and is themed as a coastal environment, while the interior exhibit includes a sky dome that is lit to reflect the Antarctic sky through the seasons. The space is insulated and stays cool year round to suit the penguins.
