Penguins Peaches and Izzy are the Zoo’s main attraction: two male penguins who put on daily shows to visitors’ delight.

The Papa Penguin Play welcomes audiences of all ages to a penguin chick first birthday party, a celebration like you’ve never seen.  Co-commissioned by Carousel Theatre for Young People and the Vancouver International Children’sFestival.
