Mark Orams interviewed by New Zealand Herald on Penguin's future

 Professor Mark Orams was interviewed by the New Zealand Herald to get his opinion in the debate whether the emperor penguin who recently ended up on the Kapiti Coast should be taken down to Antarctica, released off the coast of New Zealand to find its own way home, or kept in captivity. Professor Orams cautioned against being "seduced by the romantic notion of returning it to the wild" without careful consideration of the penguin's health.
