Willowbank’s “Earthquake” Baby | Scoop News
a possible erect-crested penguin which came ashore today at Waikuku Beach near Christchurch has been taken to Willowbank for care. No details otherwise. I just saw it on the BirdingNZ forum.

update from the above forum:
the baby siamang is a male.
Willowbank now has two green iguanas, presumably from the clutch produced at Ti Point in 2015 (of which there were twenty babies):

Willowbank now has some Antipodes Island Parakeets (three males). They used to have this species in the past, but maybe fifteen years ago.
Four male Capybara bred at Auckland Zoo arrived at Willowbank last week. They are sharing the enclosure with the Small-clawed Otter. (This was from Facebook, the post of which makes it sound like they only have one otter now but I don't know if that is correct or just poor wording).
The four Capybara are:
Pablo (born 07/06/2016) Kosh x Consuela
Diego (born 29/09/2017) Kosh x Rosita
Zorro (born 29/09/2017) Kosh x Rosita
Julio (born 29/09/2017) Kosh x Rosita
This article confirms there is only one remaining otter at Willowbank:
Jandi (born 07/04/2003) Nip x Jade
