Looking to do a little more than just look at animals when you visit the zoo?
Brookfield Zoo now offers zoogoers the opportunity to get up close and interact with two different animals.
This summer the zoo launched two new experiences: a penguin encounter and a giraffe feeding program.
Guests can waddle like a penguin over to The Living Coast exhibit and choose to participate in a behind-the-scenes Penguin Encounter, which is offered daily at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Escorted by animal care staff, resident Humboldt penguins waddle into the room and “mingle” with guests for 45 minutes.
