Known in Maori as the ‘Hoiho’, the Yellow-Eyed Penguin (Megadyptes antipodes) was awarded New Zealand's Bird of the Year in 2019. The penguin has become a voice for New Zealand’s unique native birds, raising awareness about their habitat and the threats contributing to their decline. Listed on the IUCN Red List as critically endangered, the yellow-eyed penguin is considered one of the rarest penguins on Earth. With pale yellow heads and large yellow eyes, Yellow-eyed penguins have earned their name!
