The Blue Penguins Pukekura visitor experience will be resuming from the 6th of January 2022. Call or email us to place your reservation.

Coming in the future

Our 'adopt a penguin' scheme is not available yet. In the meantime if you want to help, send us more visitors, plus think about how you can help the environment. Whether its as simple as not using plastic bags or straws, or joining a beach clean up team or volunteering with a local group - you can make a difference!

Proposed Outline:

You can make a positive contribution that ensures the wellbeing and future of the penguin colony at Pukekura.

Your adoption includes the establishment of a nest box, predator control, monitoring of your penguin as it finds a mate and produces offspring plus updates on your penguin’s progress. We will acknowledge your penguin adoption on our website and present you with an adoption certificate.

Become a kaitiaki of Pukekura and help protect and enhance the penguin colony now and for the future.

Enjoy a feeling of accomplishment as you help the littlest penguins in the world survive and prosper.
