Protection of Penguins on the Falkland Islands

At the same time as the construction of the new King penguin enclosure the Zoo Society is supporting a Royal Zoological Society of Scotland project which is taking place on the Falkland Islands and on Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic to protect the Gentoo, King and Rockhopper Penguins. The Royal Zoologicial Society of Scotland is one of the most important Scottish nature conservation and protection organisations. It also operates the zoo in the Scottish capital of Edinburgh. Amongst other animals housed there are also the world's largest breeding group of Gentoo Penguins. The Wuppertal Zoo has some of these penguins which are now living in the new enclosure together with the King Penguins.
