Home » Humboldt Penguins
Penguin Coast at the Aquarium of Niagara is home to our colony of 16 Humboldt penguins. Penguins are highly social animals, and watching these playful birds interact is like watching a sitcom play out in front of you! Come observe their individual personalities, and match the mated pairs (hint: they have the same-colored wing bands).
The Aquarium helps ensure the long-term survival of Humboldt penguins through a Species Survival Plan® (SSP). We work with other accredited zoos and aquariums to breed and transfer penguins between facilities, which helps us collectively maintain a healthy, genetically-diverse population under human care.
