He wanders 3 thousand kilometers and arrives in New Zealand: the incredible journey of “Pingu”

Incredible journey of a penguin: from its natural habitat in Antarctica it has reached New Zealand.

The Adelia specimen, affectionately renamed Pingu by the locals, has traveled at least 3,000 kilometers.

To find him, lost on the coast, Harry Singh, a resident of the area. He was walking with his wife on the beach of Birdlings Flat, a settlement south of the city of Christchurch, when he spotted him. “At first I thought it was a stuffed animal, suddenly it moved its head, so I knew it was real,” he said. “It didn’t move for an hour and looked exhausted,” he added.

Singh realized that he could not leave him there with the risk of attracting some aggressive animals and contacted Thomas Stracke, who has been involved in the conservation of penguins on the South Island of New Zealand for 10 years, who has recovered and secured him. Stracke also confirmed that the penguin was from Adélie, a species that lives exclusively on the Antarctic Peninsula.
