SNOW AND ICE GOT YOU DOWN? FOR THESE PENGUINS, IT'S PARADISE

Nat Geo WILD and SeaWorld Present a One-Hour Special on the Bold Journey to Build Florida's Very Own Penguin Paradise

Building Penguin Paradise Premieres Sunday, March 2, 2014, at 10 PM ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD

(Washington D.C. - Feb. 20, 2014) Forty-five-foot-high icebergs, temperatures below freezing and hundreds of penguins ... doesn't sound like sunny Florida, right? Think again. SeaWorld Orlando is making the impossible happen with its biggest project since opening 40 years ago - it is building a penguin paradise. And Nat Geo WILD is tagging along to see exactly how the journey to give more than 200 penguins their very own Antarctic heaven will unfold in Building Penguin Paradise, premiering Sunday, March 2, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD. (For more information, visit www.natgeowild.com and follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/NGC_PR.)

Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin(TM) recently opened at SeaWorld Orlando, and Nat Geo WILD was given special access to capture the 18-month ambitious project to construct the most elaborate penguin attraction in the world. We watch front row as every detail of the exhibit is perfectly designed so these fun-loving penguins can enjoy a safe adjustment into their new home. With unbelievable behind-the-scenes footage, Building Penguin Paradise will uncover the marvelous feats of SeaWorld's largest-ever realm, which includes a family adventure ride and culinary and retail shops. The reveal of this extravagant 6,125-square-foot Antarctic home in Florida can't come any sooner for these patient penguins who are just ready to chill out.

We'll follow the astonishing achievements of engineering necessary to accomplish such an elaborate project including carving picture-perfect ice formations in the sizzling Florida heat and installing a viewing window the weight of a school bus. Incredible footage of the penguins taken in their natural habitat will showcase each of the four species' special qualities: the Gentoos' ability to swim five times faster than an Olympic swimmer, the silly Adelies' belly-sledding technique, the Rockhoppers' hopping and climbing prowess and the Kings' majestic flirting moves. There is never a dull moment with these little guys.

Building Penguin Paradise is produced by Arrow Media for Nat Geo WILD. For Arrow Media, executive producers are Tom Brisley and Nick Metcalfe. For Nat Geo WILD, executive producer is Janet Han Vissering, and executive vice president and general manager is Geoff Daniels.
