A penguin has landed on the southeast coast of New Zealand, three thousand kilometers from its home.

The Antarctic Adélie penguin was found on the South Island by beachgoers who noticed it seemed lost.

They called him ‘Pingu’ before calling a local wildlife hospital.

The staff gave him some liquid and a fish smoothie, then dropped it back into the water.
