Penguin Welfare Project

December 17 - 17, 2019

Dr. Stephanie Allard, director of animal welfare for the Detroit Zoological Society, discusses the Center for Zoo and Aquarium Animal Welfare and Ethic’s penguin research project, which aims to better understand what is meaningful for a penguin. This two-year project involves research in two different habitats at the Detroit Zoo – the Penguinarium, built in 1968, and the new Polk Penguin Conservation Center, which opened in April 2016.
