Mel­bourne’s pen­guins

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Little Penguins -

LIT­TLE PEN­GUINS are present at the St Kilda colony all year, com­ing ashore af­ter sun­set and leav­ing again just be­fore dawn. There are, how­ever, fewer pen­guins late in the south­ern spring and dur­ing the win­ter months.

THE BEST TIME for view­ing starts from ap­prox­i­mately 30 min­utes af­ter sun­set. Vol­un­teer guides are on duty ev­ery night to help.

PLEASE RE­MEM­BER that this is a wild colony, so stay on the marked ar­eas and board­walk, do not use flash pho­tog­ra­phy, keep your dis­tance and fol­low the guides’ in­struc­tions. Find more ad­vice at St Kilda Earth­care: stk­il­dapen­guins.com.au
