Join the penguin parade

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

Keep your eyes on the breaking waves where scores of penguins are ready to make landfall after long periods hunting at sea. They leap from the water on the back of a swell, using it like and escalator to shore. And then they begin their slow parade back to their nests higher on the island. With claws like crampons and a beak like an ice axe, they can clamber up rock stacks some 40 metres high.
