Happy Feet The Penguin Headed Home

WELLINGTON, New Zealand, Aug. 29 (UPI) — Officials with the Wellington Zoo in New Zealand said the emperor penguin that recently showed up on the country’s North Island shore was on its way back home.

Lisa Argilla, manager of veterinary science at Wellington Zoo, said Happy Feet, the penguin found on Peka Peka beach two months ago, boarded the Tangaroa research vessel Monday at Burnham Wharf in Wellington and will be released about four days out to sea.

“Happy Feet is in good shape and the team at Wellington Zoo are very excited that the time has come for him to be released back into the wild, where he belongs,” said Argilla, who is accompanying Happy Feet on the voyage. “It has been an amazing journey caring for him over the past nine weeks and we have been overwhelmed by the amazing level of interest and support from around New Zealand and the world.”
