Dive deep with a yellow-eyed penguin

A video showing the deep-diving feeding habits of a yellow-eyed penguin is a "breakthrough" for marine conservationists.

Created using a high-definition camera attached to the penguin's back, the footage shows the animal scouring the ocean floor off the Otago peninsula for food before feasting on an unlucky opalfish.

It was created by the Tawaki Project, a group studying the population decline of penguins in the lower South Island.
