Toronto Zoo To Purposely Split Up Gay Male Penguin Couple – SAVE BUDDY & PEDRO!


The Toronto Zoo is going to be split Buddy and Pedro, a bonded, inseparable pair of male African penguins just so they can breed them.

The Toronto Star

They do courtship and mating behaviours that females and males would do,’’ one keeper said in an interview.

Those behaviours include making a “braying’’ sound, almost like a donkey, as a mating call. They defend their territory, preen each other, and are constantly standing alone together. In fact when the Star visited the exhibit this week Buddy emerged from the water, followed a few moments later by Pedro. The two huddled together for quite some time.

The zoo plans to do this because Buddy and Pedro have top notch genes and African penguins are endangered so the move falls within a species survival plan among zoos

But is it RIGHT?
