About Folly Farm’s Humboldt penguins
Humboldt penguins get their name from the cold sea current that runs along the west coast of South America from Chile to Peru – and that was named after the explorer Alexander von Humboldt. These penguins make their home on sandy beaches and rocky coastlines and generally live for between 20 and 25 years.
"I purchased the adopt a penguin pack last year for my son. He loved the certificate and information sheet but was over the moon when he saw his very own cuddly penguin. He couldn't wait to visit his new friend and using his ticket made him feel very grown up."

"I bought the adoption for my daughter and took her to see “her penguin”. She absolutely loved it and seeing her name on the board was great, it’s a fab idea for the kids and great value for money."
