AN adorable baby penguin born at Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park has been reintroduced to his family after a troubled start to life.
The new Humboldt penguin was born on March 23 to new parents Laurel and Cedar.
It only weighed 96g when it was born.
The animal care team was quick to intervene when the chick had trouble with feeding, but it is now being brought back into the colony.


It is being kept in a special pen within the enclosure, designed to gradually reintroduce it to its family and the rest of the park's 14 penguins.
Humboldt penguins are classed as 'vulnerable' on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, with only 12,000 left in the wild.
The species, native to coastal regions of Chile and Peru, is threatened as a result of overfishing and unethical fishing methods.

Weymouth Sea Life provides copies of the Marine Conservation Society's 'Good Fish Guide', which offers advice on the best fish to buy and the most ethical places from which to buy it.
Many Humboldt penguins kept at Weymouth Sea Life are sent to other centres across the UK in order to strengthen the breeding programme.
