good to see him on his way to recovery it would be nice to see him back in his old home or if not nearer to home

I have been watching (from Nebraska)this from the beginning. I thank the zoo and vets for taking care of Happy Feet. I wish he could stay there or be relocated to a different zoo instead of putting him back in the ocean in hopes he finds his way home. Please help him stay safe and alive.

I have been following this penguin since I was visiting in Maine (USA). This entire story is so magical. The vet and everyone involved are heros. Thank you, this has brightened an otherwise gloomy time in life. I love this penguin!

I am happy he got to see the sky at least due to the weather, Is it possible to ascertain he will swim back another 3000km or will he simply turn and follow the boat back, as he has become acquainted with people....I sincerely hope he does what is best for himself, Thank you to the Wellington Zoo staff and for DOC he is alive and well today!

It brought tears to my eyes to see Happy Feet free at last to test the waters, Have been mesmerized by him now for weeks and it is so good to see him getting perkier every day. Congrats to everyone for looking after him so well, but it will be sad to say goodbye. Are you going to electronically be able to trace his journey back south?

I've been watching (from Michigan, USA) the livestream video of the penguin in his refrigerated room for the last couple of weeks now. He has been very well cared-for, but it is a small, boring place to live, so I am absolutely delighted to see him get some time to swim!Go, Happy Feet!!! And thank you, Wellington Zoo and 3News.

@kelvyn - I'm not convinced that's how birds work xP. Would be pretty damn funny if he DID just show up again though, eh?

I think this penguin should remain in NZ. Maybe take out refugee status. Anyone who swims 3000 kms really isn't happy at home. They want to drop him back in the southern ocean. Well that's not going to work. He's not going to swim all the way back to Antarctica which obviously wasn't meeting his needs. He is just going to get washed up on another NZ beach again if he is turned loose.
