A few years ago 71-year-old Joao Pereira de Souza found a penguin who was covered in oil and almost dead. He rescued the penguin and named him Dimdim. The animal lived with Joao for 11 months before it returned to the wild. But Dimdim still swims 8,000 kilometers every single year to say thanks.

“Everyone said he wouldn’t return but he has been coming back to visit me for the past four years”

“I have never seen anything like this before. I think the penguin believes Joao is part of his family and probably a penguin as well” – said Biologist Professor Krajewski
