At every feeding a volunteer records what each bird eats, gathering data which helps biologists monitor the well-being of each individual.The Academy exhibit closely mimics the penguins' natural environment through both its physical variability and changing climatic conditions.The physical features of the exhibit—water, rocky shore, cozy burrows—encourage the full range of penguin behaviors, and through sophisticated use of light and temperature controls, Academy penguins experience sunrise, sunset, and everything in between.
When you've seen enough, take a look around our site and start planning your next visit so you can see it all up close. Or perhaps it's the fact that they are highly social and form long-term bonds.The Academy's colony of African penguins () does just that, while helping educate thousands of visitors a day about their fascinating biology and plight in the wild.Through pointing (when a penguin lowers its body to the ground and point its beak at another penguin), biting, fighting and braying, dominant birds (usually older) establish a pecking order, and will literally put a juvenile bird in its place by chasing or herding if they feel challenged.African penguins feed on anchovies and sardines in the wild, and we simulate their diet at the Academy by offering sustainably caught herring and capelin, supplemented by vitamins, including B-1, E, and a multi-vitamin.
