Roost in the colony

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

Yellow-eyed penguins, or hoiho, live around the Otago coast, Stewart Island, Campbell Island and also here at the Auckland Islands. (They also appear on the back of the $5 note.) They are one of the rarest penguins in the world, and the biggest in New Zealand. The population around New Zealand is in decline due to competition from commercial fishing, and fishing nets themselves, but here on remote Enderby Island they are relatively safe.
