The Humboldt Penguin is classed as Vulnerable, due to a declining population caused in part by over-fishing. Historically it was the victim of guano over-exploitation. The current population in the wild is estimated at between 3,300 and 12,000 individuals.

The waddle of Humboldt penguins at Newquay Zoo contributes to the breeding population in zoos worldwide.

How do I adopt a Humboldt Penguin?

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase from the options below and then make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes.
