Penguins from SA via UK arrive at Lagos Zoo

in Algarve · 10-08-2017 13:04:00 · 0 Comments

Twenty African penguins have arrived in the Algarve from a zoo in the UK to take up residence in a new enclosure at Lagos zoo.

The species originates from South Africa and can live up to 20 years. The members of the new colony of penguins at Lagos zoo are all around four years of age and were bred in captivity at the British zoo.
A new swimming pool is also being built at Lagos zoo. Part of the revenue from the pool, when it opens, will go towards a conservation project in South Africa.
