African Penguins 16 oz. double walled, stainless steel, vacuum insulated* coffee cup. No one wants to drink room-temperature coffee and this classic style cup will make sure your beverage is the perfect temperature for hours on end. Exclusively branded for Erie Zoo.
* What is vacuum insulation? Not only is it double walled, meaning a different layer on the inside and the outside, but it also has a layer of space (insulation) in between the two layers which are airtight (sealed). With the air vacuumed from between the two layers, the heat or cold is minimally transmitted through to the next layer, keeping the desired temperature inside the drinking vessel.
The mission of the Erie Zoo is to nurture an appreciation of the world and provide the community with meaningful educational and recreational experiences that foster a greater sense of awareness, stewardship and conservation of animals and plants.

Not every penguin lives in the snow and ice! African Penguins (Spheniscus demersus) make their home along the coast of South Africa - a climate similar to central California. Agile and graceful under water, they ‘fly’ through the water fast enough to chase down schools of fish. Threats facing African penguins include guano collecting, oil spills, competition with commercial fishing, egg collecting and loss of habitat. African penguins are listed as ‘vulnerable’ by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
