Humboldt penguins on the roof terrace

The ten Humboldt penguins on the roof terrace just next to the Children’s Sea exhibition are one of our visitors’ favourites. Watch them swim and dive in their 120,000-litre pool or waddle on their breeding rocks.

Humboldt penguins are an endangered species. OZEANEUM’s penguins are progeny of zoos around Mecklenburg-Vorpommern where they spent their first years. In 2011 and 2012, OZEANEUM’s first two own penguin chicks hatched.

Our Humboldt penguins already welcomed popular visitors such as the Danish Crown Prince and Crown Princess and Federal Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel who is the animal sponsor of penguin lady Alexandra.
