Lost Antarctic penguin found in New Zealand

4 posts in this topic

A royal penguin is being cared for at a New Zealand zoo after being found stranded on a beach 2,000km (1,240 miles) from its Antarctic home.

The young male bird, which was dehydrated and starving, is thought to be only the fourth royal penguin to wash up there in more than a century.

He is believed to have come from a breeding colony in the sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island.

Similar to the one found last year,which they tagged and let go,but the signal disappeared shortly after, believed to be in an Orca's tummy. These young Penguins should use better SatNavs.
