Rumble — Paradise wildlife park has proudly unveiled their new African penguin enclosure - but the penguins took a little longer to warm up to the change than expected. The family zoo in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire has carefully designed a new, larger enclosure for the colony. The zoo was bought by the Whitnall family in 1985 and they worked tirelessly to transform it from the UK’s worst zoo into an amazing conservation focused zoo for all species.

How amazing is this family's story? This is the age old tail of making something out of nothing. Now they are on their way to having a top class conservation focused zoo. With all of these awesome animal species, this family has got the making for the creation of an everlasting legacy!

Check out these penguins enjoying their new enclosure!
