The Emperor of Peka Peka Beach
by Sarah Wilcox
When a sick Emperor penguin was found on Peka Peka beach, a huge amount of interest was aroused about how to deal with the penguin. Much attention, time, and money was spent on restoring and sending the penguin (named “Happy Feet” by the media) back to his Antarctic home. Opinions for and against saving just one penguin were polarised.
