Join us for our daily penguin feeding and watch our Humboldt Penguins being fed. In the wild, the Humboldt Penguin feeds on anchovies, squid and sardines which are found in the Humboldt Ocean current off the West coast of Peru. At Harewood, we feed our penguins 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 our Penguins by helping the keepers to feed them. You will need to be aged ten years or above to feed the Penguins. Check out this link for details.
