Lost Penguin Heading Back to Antarctica

A penguin that took a wrong turn and ended up on a beach in New Zealand instead of Antarctic ice is on his way back home. Last week a research ship dropped him off in the Southern Ocean and he’s now swimming back in the right direction. A satellite transmitter that he’s wearing will send his location back twice a day, and the public that fell in love with the penguin they nicknamed “Happy Feet” can follow his trip back south. Just visit this site and click the map icon on the right to see his present location.
