TawakiFiordland Crested Penguin

Conservation status
In some trouble

A tawaki appears from the surf to hop across the sand, then make its way into the … rainforest? That's right. These are the only penguin in the world to live deep in the rainforest on the south-western corner of New Zealand.

Hey all, I'm a graphic and brand designer from Waitakere that loves all things nature and really needed an excuse to draw animals. The Tawaki is simply the wildest looking bird in this nation and I hope to capture that and draw penguins a lot.
