Penguin patrol on the job

Dozens of African and macaroni penguins are allowed to roam freely and mingle with visitors at Living Coasts in Torquay. The penguins have no fear and are quite happy to investigate shoe laces, handbags and toggles on coats.

To make sure people don't get over-excited and try to chase or pet the birds the zoo hires penguin patrollers. Patrollers have to be friendly, confident, outgoing but sensible.
