Dining options are available for visitors as well.
Penguin Cove Restaurant on the first level will offer views of the animals diving and hunting while Penguin Cove Cafe on the second level has seating for guests to observe the social interactions between the mixed-species colony on the beach.
Those who want to get up close and personal with the black and white birds can look forward to an upcoming behind-the-scenes tour experience.
It will delve into the expertise and dedication needed to care for the colony as well as a close encounter with one of the penguins, said the group.
PLANS TO EXPAND PENGUIN COLONY
Due to a larger habitat, Mandai Wildlife Group said there are plans to expand the penguin colony through ex-situ conservation programmes aimed at maintaining “healthy and genetically diverse populations of animals under human care”.
The King and Northern Rockhopper penguins are part of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria Ex-situ Programmes, while the Gentoo penguins are under the European Studbook programme.
“Participation in these global population management programmes allows Bird Paradise to receive penguins from other member zoos,” it said, adding that eight Gentoo penguins arrived from a zoo in Europe in February this year.
