Be a part of the growing community of “penguin people” who support the Polk Penguin Conservation Center – share in the excitement by making a gift today!

The Polk Penguin Conservation Center is designed to set the new standard for penguin care and conservation worldwide. The habitat ensures an optimal environment for the penguins’ welfare and encourages wild behavior, from diving and porpoising to nesting and rearing young. In addition to providing an unparalleled visitor experience, the new penguin center offers engaging educational opportunities that lead to an appreciation and stewardship of nature.
