It's great that this penguin is doing well. He may be irrelevant to the big picture, but it surely matters a lot to him.
As far as people go, at this point the bird is more valuable. We are overbreeding on this planet and slowly shoving everything but rats, pigeons and roaches to the edge. Mother Nature is an uncaring dominatrix, and all those starving children won't grow up to reproduce.
Overpopulation is going to be THE number one problem this century. Nature has cruel and heartless ways of dealing with such things. Many will die before balance is regained.
I will make my impact by refusing to reproduce and refusing to help the survival of the irrelevant humans that inhabit this planet.

It is the responsibility of the human species to give every chance we can to the creatures whose habitats we have marred and destroyed; whose populations we have lessened and brought to extinction through centuries of overuse and careless neglect. Every member of every threatened and endangered species should be treated like the last of its kind by those who have the power and resources to do so.
The poverty and neglect inflicted upon our own species is no less important and deserves its own very revealing public spotlight. What can you do to help those in need around you? What can you do to bring attention to the starving children in your nation, in your neighborhood? There are plenty of platforms for you to share with the lost penguin. I urge you to make your own impact.

I think that they are doing a very good job for the penguin. I think that because it is a very good thing to get a penguin up and running.I am from otahuhu intermediate school in auckland, and that is my opinion.

Nice story - but the message of the movie 'Happy Feet' seems to have been lost, the movie was about the destruction of feeding grounds by commercial fishing. Saving one bird is irrelevant, do you want to make a difference or just get the warm fuzzies?
