In September last year this Fjiordland Penguin was found lying amongst the rocks by Mara, at Tura Beach, thoroughly exhausted and with a major injury thought to be from a boat propeller.

After weeks of intensive care with Janine, a WIRES volunteer, treatment from Merimbula Veterinary Clinic and copious quantities of fish...he began to recover.
