Up close with African penguins at the Pueblo Zoo

PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Pueblo Zoo gave VIP, behind-the-scenes access to their perky penguin population on Monday.

KRDO Photojournalist Andrea Vasquez had the chance to visit the zoo's African penguins, some of the most endangered birds in the world.

Zookeepers say climate change, overfishing, and people harvesting their eggs and guano have dwindled the penguin's numbers within the last 200 years.
