African penguins housed in zoos, aquariums and educational facilities receive a steady, nutritious diet, excellent health care and are protected from predators. This helps increase their lifespan. Whereas many African penguins in the wild may live 10 or 15 years, penguins in aquariums educational facilities and zoos will live 20 yeas and more. Some penguins in captivity have lived over 40 years.
