Heartwarming moment rescued baby penguins waddle their way to freedom

Six baby penguins, which were injured or sickly before their rescue, were freed at a beach in South Africa today (December 31) following a few weeks of rehabilitation.

Footage captured in Mossel Bay shows the moment the little penguins run to the water after being released at the shore.

‘’Emotions where high and everyone could not have been happier to see the penguins run for freedom,’’ the filmer said.
