Play With Penguins At Blank Park Zoo In Iowa For An Adorable Adventure

Have you been to a zoo recently? If the last time you went to one was in grade school, you might be due for a trip. The Hawkeye State has a handful of zoos and nature centers with animals to enjoy. And although you can choose to stay home and watch some of the extensive, incredible footage of the animal world available these days, it’s not the same as seeing the real animals with your own eyes and making discoveries about their behavior, form, gracefulness, regalness, and – yes – adorableness. The closer the better, which is why the behind-the-scenes Sea Lion and Penguin Experience at Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines, Iowa is such an incredible opportunity.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Whether it’s been decades or days since you’ve been to the zoo, this behind the scenes experience will give you a unique perspective as you encounter some pretty amazing animals! Learn more at the Blank Park Zoo website. And just so you know, there are other behind-the-scenes experiences available as well, including wallabies, giraffes, rhinos, and more.
