Because this penguin was born blind, Blindy has had a tough life. At only 12 weeks old, the poor thing lost its family. Without help, Blind surely would’ve died in the wild. Fittingly enough, however, a woman named Shireen Helps decided to lend a helping hand.
Now living at the woman’s penguin sanctuary in Flea Bay, New Zealand, Blindy is learning more every day. Next up? Learning how to swim!
Even though Blindy will never be able to return to the wild, Helps hopes that the penguin will find a forever home at a zoo one day.
