When we park the rehabilitated penguins in our soft-release pens they need to eat from our hand and feeding must not be stressful. By the time the gate is opened they ought to have learned that there will be food here if they get into trouble. We have evidence that this works: in the past we have found emaciated penguins hanging around in or near the soft-release pens patiently waiting for us to turn up. Usually they are so thin that they need two meals a day to fatten up, so we take them to our rehab facility for a while for more frequent feeding, observations and establishing whether they have injuries or are sick. This one is certainly knows how to feed nicely and in a day or two the gates will be opened and it can go - if it wishes.
