5. Meet Ngaru - the kororā with one flipper
Ngaru is a little blue penguin who was brought to the Zoo by a member of the community after she was caught in a discarded fishing net and severely damaged her flipper.
The team at The Nest Te Kōhanga did a great job looking after her but unfortunately could not save her flipper and return her to the wild.
Luckily, they were able to successfully introduce her to the existing kororā colony at the Zoo where she has settled into her new home, so you can go and see her for yourself!
Wellington Zoo is open under Alert Level 2 and are taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe. Please read their COVID-19 updates before your visit.
Watch out each Friday for a fun list of five great activities to do, places to explore, or things to discover in our awesome city (depending on our Alert Level!)
