Keeping Penguins Healthy & Frisky with the Right Environmental Conditions

Discover how our RF solution helped Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium to maintain the correct temperature & humidity levels for their cute penguins!

While the ice hockey team may be the better-known Penguins in Pittsburgh, the penguins at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium are definitely the cuter ones!

The 24 penguins in the PPG Aquarium (17 Gentoo and 7 Macaroni penguins) love to dive, swim, preen, play in their climate-controlled enclosure. Their cute antics make them a popular draw with children and their parents who often press themselves against the glass to see them.

Problem

Penguins are sensitive to temperature and humidity. If conditions are out of their ideal range for an extended period of time, the penguins could develop a respiratory infection called Aspergillosis, or Asper. Aspergillosis is a fungal infection that can be severe and/or even chronic.

Simple Solution

To help monitor and maintain a healthy environment for their fine feathered friends, the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium uses our RF temperature and humidity loggers – two RF loggers monitoring the temperature and humidity in the penguin enclosure itself and one RF unit with a probe to monitor the water temperature.

Let’s Keep Penguins Happy!
