Humboldt Penguins Get New Digs at Woodland Park Zoo

Designed by Studio Hanson Roberts, the new exhibit to open in May of this year, features green technologies and themed design.  The penguins' new home will be outdoor, and features 30'  of underwater viewing. 

The commendable  plan for the exhibit includes heating/cooling the exhibit pool through geothermal wells, and water filtration through a combination of traditional filters and Living Machine-type natural filtration.  The water volume will be supplemented as needed with rainwater collected from back of house roofs.
