Christchurch Penguin Rehabilitation provides a rehabilitation service for sick and injured penguins in the Canterbury region.

  Canterbury Endangered Wildlife

We love penguins! We are a group of penguin rescuers that rehabilitate penguins. The penguins that need us are lost, hungry or injured and are found all over Canterbury, even in the Avon river! Department of Conservation rangers and members of the public like you help us to locate these penguins and bring them in so they can be assessed, rehabilitated and released. We are specially trained to care for sick penguins who may need medicine and lots of food. A small penguin can eat 200-300gms of fish a day and a large penguin like the Yellow Eyed Penguin can eat 1kg of fish a day.

Use of funds

Your donation will help us provide food, medicine and veterinary care to the penguins. We get them healthy and ready to be released into the wild. A safe release location is found for each penguin that suits the type of penguin. Please help us in our efforts to conserve these beautiful endangered birds!

Busy season  16 May 2019

We have admitted 35 penguins this year, most of them White-flippered penguins (as small as 390g!) but also yellow-eyed penguins and an Erect-crested penguin from Antipodes/Bounty Islands which has been attacked by a dog. Thanks to our vets for lots of surgery...

      Thank you very much, Jeremy! The "Avon- penguin" is doing well, survived the night and is on fish-smoothie for now... and a media-attraction as well (Newstalk ZB and News hub)...
