Say good bye to the penguins Monday at the Saint Louis Zoo
Last chance to see one of its most-beloved zoo exhibits for at least the next two years. Enjoy your last opportunity to be in close proximity to the majestic inhabitants of the Penguin and Puffin Coast before they are moved to a different location - out of public view - to make way for the construction of a new polar bear habitat.
Monday is the last day that the penguins will be on display. The good news? Admission to the Saint Louis Zoo is free (save for a special fee for certain exhibits), so you can go back as many times as you want to get your penguin fix! For more information, check out www.stlzoo.org.
