The ABQ BioPark’s much anticipated Penguin Chill features over thirty penguins. Visitors can see gentoo, macaroni, and king penguins in this immersive exhibit. When visitors first enter the doors, a rush of chilly air is a welcome relief from the New Mexico summer heat. Guests first view the the birds on land, which includes man-made snow and lights that simulate the Aurora Australis, or the southern lights. In this large viewing area, the penguins jump in and out of the water. 

Then visitors move on to an interactive educational area. This area features the inside of a ship where guests can learn more about penguins and how to help with conservation efforts.

At the bottom of the exhibit, guests can observe the graceful bird’ underwater behavior. Don’t miss this exhibit, the first of its kind in the Southwest.
