Penguin in New Zealand – level 1

Penguin in New Zealand – level 1

26-02-2013 14:00

A penguin is very far from home now. The penguin is in New Zealand. Only 3 penguins came to New Zealand before. The penguin is at Wellington Zoo now.

The normal home for the penguin is 2000 kilometres far from New Zealand. Two years ago there was another penguin who came to New Zealand. People wrote about that penguin in newspapers.

If the situation is better for this new penguin, it will be in hospital 6 weeks and then it will go back to its home.

Interesting words: penguin (big black and white bird from the Antarctic), far (nor near).
