In the wild the Humboldt Penguin feeds on anchovies, squid and sardines that are found in the Humboldt Ocean current of the West coast of Peru. At Harewood we feed them whitebait and sprats, fish that are similar in size to their natural diet, although they will also eat small Herrings. They usually feed just after sunrise at a depth of around 1 metre.
Get up close to the Penguins by helping the keepers feed them. You need to be aged ten years or above to feed the Penguins – it costs just £10 and can be booked through the Harewood Information Centre on 0113 218 1000.
