Pinguins on the boulders beach pool
This Space is a recreation of Boulders beach, a beach located near the city of Cape Town, South Africa. On this beach is a colony of African penguins that there has settled since 1982. From only 2 breeding pairs the colony has grown to close to 3000 birds in recent years. Although this beach is located in a residential area, it is one of the few places where this threatened species can be observed, freely, in a protected place. On the Boulders beach of the Lagos Zoo, this is what we try to recreate – A place where you can observe African penguins , with underwater vision, but that is protected for them and that the coexistence between visitor / animal can occur in harmony. As such, there will be some rules that will need to be met in order to safeguard the interest of the animals.
