Adorable penguins are soon going to delight Everland visitors!
For locals and tourists traveling to South Korea, make sure to stop by at Everland and check out its newest spot — Penguin Island.
South Korea’s largest theme park, Everland, adds a new attraction named Penguin Island. Located at the entrance of Everland Zoo, it will feature 60 jackass penguins beginning June 14.
Additionally, Penguin Island houses a nature-friendly environment with a 130-ton large swimming pool and gravel field. Visitors can observe through the transparent acrylic window. A viewing space at the bottom of the pool will also feature a different viewing point for the patrons.
Jackass penguins are native to South Africa. Known for their cute appearance, the species has been rapidly decreasing in numbers. Because of that, the World Conservation Union has designated its species as endangered.
For attraction’s opening, Everland will host an event where the breeder of the penguins will explain its nature. Additionally, the importance of marine ecosystem conservation will also be relayed. The talk will be held twice daily at 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. KST.
