Yellow Eyed Penguin Pictures

Photo gallery of Yellow eyed penguin pictures and photos from the South Island of new Zealand, photographed by professional photographer Rolf Hicker.

An adorable species of penguin is the Yellow Eyed Penguin which is considered to be the third largest penguin in the world and lives and breeds on the forested coastline of New Zealand as well as the sub-Antarctic Islands to the south of New Zealand. The Yellow Eyed Penguin loves to reside in the forest and scrub land where they may travel up to 30 kilometers a day to feed on Red Cod, Opal Fish, Sprat, Silversides, Ahuru, Blue Cod and Squid.

The Yellow Eyed Penguin has decreased considerably in numbers over the years and since 1987 there has been a Trust created for these penguins that is aimed at saving them by restoring coastal forests and controlling predators.

There are various sights to view the Yellow Eyed Penguin in New Zealand and are best to watch at dawn or dusk as they leave their nests early and head out for a day's fishing only to return near the last two hours of daylight. ...More information below photos...
