The truth about this little guy is that even though his eyes show heppyness, his species is in serious danger of extinction. They are the “yellow eyed penguin” (hoiho in Māori), one of the oldest species and found only in New Zealand. It's very rare to see them now as there are estemated only 4000 left in the wild. Human inpact on their habitat and climate change are all factors contribuiting to their decrease in numbers. I am writing this post to make you aware of this endangered species and to remind you and myself that, if we really want we can make a difference!
