Penguins Rock at Edinburgh Zoo

Edinburgh Zoo's iconic Penguin Pool, just before re-opening to the public in March 2013. The new enclosure, called 'Penguins Rock' features lowered perimeters made from glass and wood, that make visitors feel so much closer to the birds. Enhanced viewing areas have also been created and interactive interpretation draws inspiration from the birds themselves - with feathers, nesting rings, parasols and eggs featuring. Mock sandy beaches and rocky areas add great visual touches and also provide the birds with different textures that are perfect for their feet. Visitors can also see the birds have fun with a beautiful stone waterfall feature, a water shoot in the shallow end and a diving board made out of a carved rock.
