Young and the Flightless Episode 1

Penguin love triangle


When you have a penguin colony as large as ours, drama is inevitable. We often feel that the lives of our Humboldt penguins are quite the soap opera, so we decided to bring it to life!

Welcome to the Young and the Flightless, a new web series about the tales of the Akron Zoo penguin colony. In this series, penguin keeper, Vicky, will share dramatic true stories from the penguins over the years!

In episode 1, Keeper Vicky details an ongoing situation - a love triangle of Chovie+Huevo+Pedro! Who will Chovie choose this breeding season? Only time will tell!
