This is a story about Jinjing the South American Magellanic Penguin, that swims 5,000 miles each year to be reunited with the man who saved his life.
The rescued Penguin was saved by João Pereira de Souza, a 73 year old part-time fisherman, who lives in an island village just outside Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Joao found the tiny penguin, at his local beach lying on rocks, it was covered in oil, could barely move and was close to death.
Joao cleaned the oil off the penguin’s feathers and fed him a daily diet of fish to build his strength. He named the penguin Jin Jing.
Every year the Penguin leaves to the breeding grounds and then returns to Joao.
Thanks for watching
Note: Some say the penguins name is Dindin, but when I was researching this story, I found the Wall Street Journal had both a website article & a video covering the story saying the penguins name is Jinjing.
