Waddle with us to Waco!

Join our little penguin friend as he pops up around town while making his way to Cameron Park Zoo to join the South African penguins at our new Gloria and F.M. Young Penguin Shores Exhibit on Thursday, August 8!

Waco Transit dropped him off at the Waco Suspension Bridge, and he's made his way around town to:

  • Dr Pepper Museum
  • Milk Bottle Cookies
  • Foster Pavilion
  • Roc My Style Barber Shop
  • Fire Station #1
  • McLane Stadium

Where do you think he'll show up next?

South African penguins are hot weather penguins, so they'll fit right in here in Central Texas! They are the only penguin species found in Africa and are an endangered species. We can't wait for them to settle into their new home here in Waco!
