The emperor penguin which swam thousands of kilometres from Antarctica to the Kapiti Coast has been taken to Wellington Zoo because its condition has deteriorated. The juvenile penguin, which has been at Peka Peka beach since Monday, is going to be checked over at the zoo's special treatment facility.
