London Zoo penguins celebrate 2012 games with custom-built diving board

By on Thursday, March 29, 2012

Penguins at ZSL London Zoo have been awarded LOCOG’s Inspired by 2012 mark for its summer Animal Athletes programme, and to celebrate the sporty birds have had their very own diving board installed.

Head Bird keeper, Adrian Walls said: “The penguins love nothing more than to show off their diving skills and really play up to the audiences during Penguin Beach Live!; I think they love having their very own div

ing board.”

The new diving board will help to drive awareness of a new series of London Zoo Live! events as part of the London 2012 Inspire Programme which include their own range of Animal Athletes demonstrating their sporting abilities.
