Yellow eyed penguin/Hoiho 

Population : 4000 - 5000 (2019)

Hoiho means 'noise shouter' referring to the shrill breeding calls they make.

The population in the South Island of New Zeeland has decreased 65% in 20 years making these birds Nationally endangered.

The Hoiho will moult all its feathers at once, making it landlocked for up to 4 weeks until it grows new waterproof feathers.

During moulting, Hoiho are particularly vulnerable to predation by dogs, cats, ferrets and stoats.
