    Description
    The White Flippered Little Blue Penguin is seen on most cruises. They have numerous nesting colonies around Banks Peninsula. It's the smallest penguin in the world and is now on the endangered list thanks to ferrets, stoats and wild cats. The penguin is very similar to the fairy penguin in Port Philip Island, Victoria, Australia. It spends all of its day at sea and comes ashore to moult and nest - over summer. It flies like a bird under the water and eats zoo plankton and small fish.
