Penguin in New Zealand – level 2

Penguin in New Zealand – level 2

26-02-2013 14:00

Once again, a penguin was found on a beach in New Zealand, 2000 kilometres from where the penguin lives. This only the fourth time a penguin has ever been discovered on a beach in New Zealand. The penguin is at Wellington Zoo now.

Two years ago there was another penguin who came to New Zealand and that bird received a lot of publicity in the local newspapers.

If the situation improves for the latest penguin, it will spend 6 weeks in hospital and then be released back into the wild.

Interesting words: publicity (public attention), released (freed).
