The Chatham Island Penguin is a crested eudyptes bird. It is white and black with yellow feathers for eyebrows. They tend to make a variety of noises such as hissing, crying, and trumpeting.

Savior for the Penguins?
Their are many kinds of flora's where chatham island penguins are, such as Olearia (tree daisies), Rautini (brachyglottis huntii) and giant sow thistle. The location where chatham island penguins are located is in New Zealand, where their is also many faunas. Some faunas that also live in chatham island are called Chatham Island tāiko, black robin, and oyster catcher.
The weather in chatham island includes warm wetlands as well as temperate forests. These penguins tend to live and spend most of their time on rocky cliffs. Because these creatures depend on each other, their social structure is made up of packs instead of them traveling on their own.
During 1867-1872 the Chatham Island Penguins were kept captive which caused their population to decrease. Since these animals were not a major importance to scientist at that time, scientist were too late to help prevent this creature to go extinct.
This specie could have definitely been saved if scientist new about the troubles that these penguins were going through. Scientist could have stopped humans from hunting these penguins down and could have later set up a male and female to mate and make the population increase again.
