Penguin Tsunami

Produced by NHNZ

Its early summer in southern New Zealand, and the Dunedin Wildlife Hospital has been inundated with wave after wave of starving penguin chicks. Dr Lisa Argilla and her team pull out all stops to save the hungry youngsters. Add to this a clutch of endangered kākā parrot chicks that need ‘round-the-clock care, and a kiwi that’s refusing to eat; the results are bedlam. The hospital is being stretched to its limits.

Meanwhile, out on the Otago coast, Pete investigates the arrival of a rare leopard seal, and Rosalie helps get an ex-hospital patient back into the wild.
