Penguin Chicks On The Move

The Penguin Post have obtained these images from the U.K., taken yesterday of the last Penguin chick (aged 11 days) due to leave the Isle of Wight this evening to join the other hatchlings at Longleat Safari Park, Wiltshire, England. Sixteen chicks were bred at Seaview Wildlife Encounter on the Isles of Wight this spring especially for the new Humboldt Penguin exhibit at Longleat – due to open later this year. The chicks will be hand-reared over the next 12-14 weeks at which time they’ll be fully grown and ready to feed independently.  Seaview Director, Lorraine Adams, said: “It is a pleasure to have been selected to breed and supply our Humboldt Penguin chicks to such a prestigious and well-known Safari Park”.
