Penguins!

The Kakapo of Whenua Hou have other flightless birds as their neighbors. Penguins! Kakapo AND penguin tracks on the beach!

 

Who DOESN'T love penguins? Whenua Hou hosts breeding colonies of 3 species--the hohio/Yellow-eyed Penguin, the Korora/Little Penguin, and the Tawaki/Fiordlands Crested Penguin. And several other species are occasionally spotted.
