PENGUIN RESCUE NZ
Te whaka oraka o te takaraka

Hello friends and family
On Tuesday I started up the camper - first time this year and it went!
The plan was to go to Hampden and pick the last of the apples, but when I got there the road was closed because of an accident so I came home.
Road closed - few tourists so I ventured down the hill. As I came home I chose the Maori path and as I was passing the hang out spot of the nest 38 pair there was a skinny penguin so I picked it up and brought it home.
It is Stitches! 3.2Kg, needing a helping hand but otherwise FABULOUS! This bird was the second self-admission this week. Wednesday was the first rainy day in a long time so I tackled the hot water cupboard and the linen cupboard. I do hang on to stuff so a sort out was in order.
The sun came out again on Thursday so after the weekly shop I headed off to check the beaches for stranded penguins – none to be seen which is great.
The vet came on Friday morning to check out our 4 penguin in care. The Oamaru veterinary centre has given us great support and guidance this season – thank you all so much!
Yesterday we go in another penguin.
Have a great week!
