Coming to Dunedin, I didnt expect that I would go on a tour to see yellow-eyed penguins. To be honest, I didnt even know the existence of these species before that.
Well, I'm glad I had gone for the tour. The money paid is absolutely worth it all. Knowing more about the yellow-eyes penguins and the causes for them being critically endangered through the introduction from the guide. We got to see 2 penguins at the penguin hospital recuperating as well.
Then, we took the bus out to the trenches where we were hidden from the penguins. We saw two adult yellow-eyed penguins right in front of the hole. It was so amazing. And we saw the fluffy little baby penguin sleeping in his nest. He is so adorable!
After the tour with yellow-eyed penguins, we headed out to the cliff side where we saw more wildlife - blue penguins taking naps in their boxes, young male fur seals full of testosterones eager to fight with one another and many seagulls.
All in all, it was a very educational tour. An exceptional amount of effort that has been put into running the place can be seen. Kudos to the team who is running the place and conducting tours. Every tour conducted means more people knowing abt the yellow-eyes penguins and in a way, contributing to the survival of the species.
I really learnt a lot about the yellow-eyed penguins through the short tour and I had enjoyed myself very much. Thanks Penguin Place for this rare opportunity to see the yellow-eyed penguins at such a close proximity (:
