Penguins; snowy birds that survive in some of the harshest environments known to man.

But not all of them live in a winter wonderland.. Meet Africa’s only penguin!

These bubbly birds are living on top of one of the busiest cities in South Africa – Cape Town.

They cause chaos wherever they waddle in the busy streets, but with their fragile species under threat, their future is bleak.

Luckily there’s a team of dedicated heroes who’ve stepped in to help, at Africa’s busiest emergency department for Penguins. The hospital rescue more than 1500 vulnerable little penguins every year, and work 24/7 to rehab them with a lot of TLC, all to get them back to the wild where they belong.

Follow some of the cheekiest and most lovable penguins, as they fight for their lives in tropical South Africa.

Lorraine Kelly narrates the series.
