Buddy and Pedro may seem an unlikely match, seeing as they're both male penguins, but they've formed a strong bond anyway.
They even perform mating rituals with each other and sleep together at night.
The problem is that they also happen to be part of an endangered species.
So to ensure the survival of their species, they will be split up and placed with females to mate with.
So even though it's sad, we do understand the importance of keeping these beautiful birds alive and on our planet.
