Penguin Swims 8,000KM (?) Every Year To Visit The Man Who Saved His Life

Via Tuan Hoang


This is a heartwarming story of a South American Magellanic penguin named Dindim, who swims 8000km each year to be reunited with the man who saved him 8 years ago.

In 2011, Joao Pereira de Souza, a 71 year- old fisherman who lives in the island village in Brazil, found a tiny penguin covered in oil and was close to death. Joao cleaned the oil off the penguin’s feathers, nursed him back to health and give him a name Dindim.

  1. I read about Dindim awhile back. Incredible and endearing.
    I watched Dindim look up into Joao's eyes - he loves him.
