National Aviary - Penguin Point
This webcam gives you a sneak peek into Penguin Point, the Aviary's African penguin exhibit. African penguins, also known as jackass penguins, are native to South Africa and live in a climate similar to Pittsburgh: cold in the winter, warm in the summer. The Aviary's exhibit currently features a colony of 10 penguins: Patrick, Stanley, Elvis, Simon, Sidney, Preston, Dottie, Rainbow, Demi, and Owen. They share their exhibit with two Cape shelducks.
As part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP), two of our African penguins, Kristen and New Penguin, are living off-exhibit with the hope of breeding in the near future.
