This is Vivek on the right, one of our naturally fledged chicks that came back with a small nick in his foot. He was only 4.2kg when he came into our rehab facility in mid May. He is very lucky to have a kind sponsor who picked up his hospital bill and paid for his food and medicine. Thank you!
He has now been transferred to our release pens in the penguin colony where he is meeting the locals and has a view of the beach. In a few days the pen gates will be opened and he can leave. He knows how to fish and where to come back to if he is in trouble again. Lets hope nothing nibbles his feet again!
