Stranded penguin is moved to zoo
Saturday 25 June 2011
After planning to let nature take its course, wildlife officials yesterday moved a stranded emperor penguin from a New Zealand beach to Wellington Zoo after its health worsened.
First seen on a North Island beach on Monday, the young penguin had been eating sand and driftwood. Officials feared it might die.
Emperor penguins typically spend their entire lives in Antarctica, about 2,000 miles from the North Island beach. It is 44 years since an Emperor Penguin was seen in New Zealand.
