Penguin Cove at Louisville Zoo in Kentucky opened in May 2016. Penguin Cove is home to the Little Blue Penguins native to the southern coast of Australia.
The Penguin Cove project was converted from an existing exhibit pool. The challenges included adding additional filtration to the exhibit while leaving the majority of the exhibit pool untouched.
The penguin exhibit is a 13,000 gallon freshwater habitat. The LSS consists of sand filtration, heating/chilling, and disinfection. See Project Gallery
