Long swim for an Emperor Penguin

How fantastic,
The folks from New Zealand sure had a treat when this creature arrived on their shores.
I've been going to the Antarctic for 12 years and have yet to see an Emperor Penguin. I could have stayed at home all this time.
Enjoy the short news clip on the site below.
