Penguins released back off the Sydney coast
THEY arrived at Sydney’s Taronga Wildlife Hospital with all sorts of woes, but it’s now time for five little penguins to return to the ocean.
The penguins were released into Manly’s Shelly Beach on yesterday morning after being treated for conditions including dehydration, a fishing hook injury and a broken foot.
The flightless birds were delivered to the zoo over the past two months from as far as Newcastle, Maroubra and Bondi, and are part of 1500 native animals cared for by Taronga veterinarians each year.
