When the penguin lost its way and reached New Zealand 3000 km away from its home


A penguin reached the coast of New Zealand about 3000 km from his home. It has its own natural habitat, Antarctica. This is the idyllic penguin that the locals affectionately call "penguin".


"At first I thought it was a children's toy made of cotton," says Harry Singh. The Adelie Penguin has appeared on the New Zealand coast for the third time. Harry Singh and his wife spotted the penguin as they walked along the beach outside the Birdling's flat after a long day's work. This is the population in the southern part of Christchurch.


A picture of a penguin posted by Harry Singh on Facebook shows that he is alone and lost.


"It simply came to our notice then. Harry Singh then called rescue workers to the penguin because he was worried about the penguin not going into the water so he could be a potential target for other carnivorous animals roaming the shore.


He said, "We didn't want it to end up in the cat's or dog's stomach,". He finally reached out to Thomas Streaky, who had been working to rehabilitate a penguin on the South Island of New Zealand for the past ten years.


Mr. Stricky said he was surprised to find that he was the only type of ideal penguin found only on the Antarctic peninsula. Mr. Stricky, along with a veterinarian, rescued the penguin that evening. The penguin's blood was tested and he weighed less and was dehydrated.


He has since been given liquids and food through the esophagus. The bird will be taken to a safe beach in Pennsylvania where dogs are not allowed. The Adelie penguin has been spotted off the coast of New Zealand for the third time in the country's history. The penguins had previously appeared here in 1962 and 1993. Experts say Adele is rarely seen in New Zealand now, but if she appears more in the future, it could be a sign of danger.


Philip Seidon, a professor of zoology at the University of Otago, told The Guardian: "I think if the penguins came here on an annual basis, we would actually be able to do something, something that has changed the ocean and we need to be understood. ‘ Further research will help us understand where the penguins have gone, what they do, what their population trends are,


They will tell us what is the ecosystem of groundwater in general.
