The new Penguin Coast exhibit will open September 27th, so it is the final countdown for the construction team. In the newest time lapse video, we have changed perspective, so you can see the final touches go on the main outdoor viewing area. Keep scrolling through the photos below and take a virtual tour around the exhibit, including inside the Penguin Education Building, where you can see the giant underwater viewing windows. Also, get a glimpse of the new space where our flock of flamingos will be landing on Sept 27th.
