ROYAL OAK, Mi (WPBN/WGTU)-- The new state-of-the-art Polk Penguin Conservation Center at the Detroit Zoo now has a penguin cam!

The Detroit Zoo says you can watch the penguins waddle on the penguin cam, which is available to watch daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The 33,000 square foot, $30 million conservation center sits on 2 acres at the front of the Zoo.
The Detroit Zoo says the 326,000 gallon chilled aquatic area affords the penguins with 10 times the amount of water in their former habitat, the Penguinarium-- giving the penguins plenty of room to zoom, swim and dive.

In the Polk Penguin Conservation Center, an underwater gallery with a huge acrylic windows and two acrylic tunnels gives spectacular views of the penguins above, around and below.

The center is free with Detroit Zoo admission, but requires timed-entry passes that are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Polk Penguin Conservation Center opened April 18th.
